Keep raining on ’em folks till their levee breaks!
“Cryin’ won’t help you, prayin’ won’t do you no good

When the levee breaks
Hello peoples of the planet!
This blog will be discussing the worldwide legend of the mill and mill stone,and what it all means.
First though,as promised in the last blog,we will continue on with the connections between the weeping virgin (Venus/Isis) and old father time. (Saturn/Satan)
Taking a closer look at the bible account of the Feast of Tabernacles or Festival of Booths…..Sukkot.
This festival is celebrated in the Hebrew month of Tishri,which corresponds in our calendar to late September till late October. (see the wiki entry on Sukkot above)
Late September till late October belongs to one sign of the zodiac,that being the sign of Libra!
If you’ve been following along the last few blogs,you will know that the sign of Libra is ruled by Venus,and Saturn is exalted in Libra.
That alone tells us there is the link between the two,Saturn/Satan (Old father time) and Venus/Isis (the weeping virgin) in Libra.
The word Virgin “Almah” in the bible doesn’t necessarily mean a woman who has not had intercourse.
The word “Almah” can also mean maiden/young woman.
The “weeping” in the term “weeping virgin,” can also mean a menstruating woman/maiden.(symbolism contains many meanings.)
It also means the end of the harvest in the signs of Virgo/Libra,hence the broken pillar on the statue. (Virgo weeps for the Sun/Mars falling back into autumn and winter at Libra (crying for things past/crying for The Sun as he leaves his throne at the summer solstice,where he lost his head in the personification of John the Baptist) as Saturn (old father time/grim reaper) exalts or arrives on the scene himself.
If you know the story of Isis and Osiris,you will know that she cried over a broken pillar also,that pillar being the penis of her husband Osiris.
Isn’t it interesting that another name for the penis is the “member” and Isis re”members” Osiris in the story. (more in a later blog)
The bible talks about the weeping women at Ezekiel 8:14
“He brought me to the north gate of the Lord’s Temple, and some women were sitting there, weeping for the god Tammuz.”
Tammuz is the Sun at the summer solstice and those women are again crying over the suns declining strength,or the softening male member after it being at the most high. (erection)
However while the Sun/Mars is in his decline,Saturn is on the up and up as is the feminine part of the cycle….Saturn and the virgin/maiden are about to get together,and this is celebrated at the festival of booths.
The Hebrew name for the festival of booths is “Succoth Benoth” meaning “booths of daughters.” (or prostitutes.)
Daughters/women in booths/prostitutes?
Could there be some sexual shenanigans going on here with Saturn and Venus?
The word “Benoth” in Succoth Benoth means “Venus.”
Now we have the weeping virgin,what about old father time?
Well,the “Succoth” of Succoth Benoth is connected with Saturn!
(Interestingly,the booth or box shape is also connected to Saturn..see the cube of space in earlier blogs.)
James Ballantyne Hannay in his book “sex symbolism in religion” tells us that all nations round about were invited to the big one,the party of the year…sexy time!
“Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.”
The festival of booths was a sex festival in the sign of Libra,where Saturn and Venus are together,just as the account in Genesis talks of the tree of Knowledge,the apple and the fall.
The bible story has Saturn/Satan/Serpent/Snake enticing Eve/Venus to come and eat of the fruit! (sexual act).
It was the ancient Jewish version of a sexual free for all commune for a week.
It’s following nature and the zodiac cycle,it’s not good or bad….we only perceive them to be so from our viewpoint/indoctrination.
In Aries (spring equinox) the Lamb/Sun comes to meet his chaste bride/full moon dressed in white (for the 6 months of light)….however at the autumnal equinox,she turns into sexy Venus and becomes frisky Babylon the Great (for 6 months of darkness) until God puts a stop to her shenanigans and brings the balance back again.
The zodiac helps all of the riddles in the bible to unravel and…ahem…expose themselves!
The colour of Venus is green in alchemy….and with all that said….it sounds like it was a bit of a sukkot sizzler back then!
Notice in the song above,they sing about shaking the lulav in six directions and then back to the centre…..see the blog “at sixes and sevens” for more on that.
Remember this,it’s only offensive to our sensibilities nowadays because of our indoctrination from birth,just as to a Mormon….drinking coffee or tea is a no no!
To a JW taking a blood transfusion is wrong!
Drinking alcohol in Saudi Arabia can get you flogged and off to prison.
Scientologists will never go near a psychiatrist.
Humans are so programmable!
Before this blog gets underway,I would also like to further expose the deceitful leaders of the JW’s,who call themselves the “Governing body.”
They’re not the biblical “faithful and discreet slave”,they’re very naughty boys!
(although not naughty in the sexual way above,more like naughty liars,deceiving their duped adherents….who receive a different type of shafting than at Succoth Benoth)
Look at the poor kids in this Awake magazine.
The Watchtower society proudly proclaim that all of the kids died “putting God first.”
However this video shows in under 2 minutes the hypocrisy/flip flops and lies going on in the organization,this time regarding their blood policy.
Thanks goes to Cappy for the video!
In 1994 the Awake magazine said this.
“In former times thousands of youths died for putting God first. They are still doing it, only today the drama is played out in hospitals and courtrooms, with blood transfusions the issue.” Awake! 1994 May 22 p.2
Then four years later they say this!
Watchtower December 1st 1998 page 14 in the article “Defending our faith.”
“Jehovah’s witnesses have been targets of false accusations-bare faced lies and twisted presentations of their beliefs…The accusation that numerous children of Jehovah’s witnesses die as a result of refusing blood transfusions is totally unfounded.”
So there you have it,on one hand they are parading the fact that children are dying bravely for their stand against taking blood,and then four years later say that the accusation that numerous children die from not taking blood is “unfounded.”
Think of the poor people stuck in there,most ,but not all,blind to their organizations flip flopping and the fact that people are losing their life for a lie.
Yet the very book they claim to follow says this….
Matthew 12:7 “However, if YOU had understood what this means, ‘I want mercy, and not sacrifice,’ YOU would not have condemned the guiltless ones.”
Let’s get going on this blog.
Samson (Mars/the Sun) is betrayed by Delilah the cunning/dark/female/eve/enchantress/the sinister/left-handed/siren/Venus calling him to the rocks of his doom and he eventually ends up down at Gaza (the goat) Capricorn…the midnight of the year.
The winter solstice is a time of merriment and parties (Christmas and New Year)….and on cue,there is a party going on at Gaza and Samson is taking centre stage.
“Now the rulers of the Philistines assembled to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god and to celebrate, saying, “Our god has delivered Samson, our enemy, into our hands.”While they were in high spirits, they shouted, “Bring out Samson to entertain us.” So they called Samson out of the prison, and he performed for them. When they stood him among the pillars.”
And verses 29,30.
“Then Samson reached toward the two central pillars on which the temple stood. Bracing himself against them, his right hand on the one and his left hand on the other. Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” Then he pushed with all his might, and down came the temple on the rulers and all the people in it. Thus he killed many more when he died than while he lived.”
Samson literally brings the house down on all!
This is the midnight of the year,when the old day gives way to the new.The old year dies and the new one is born a babe…a cycle has completed,the snake has eaten its tail.
This gives us a glimpse into the workings of the cycle,when the cycle ends it is usually party time,people are too distracted partying to notice that the house is about to collapse on them,they cannot see the writing on the wall,Belshazzar did not take note at his party also.
There was another strange activity happening with Samson before his death at verse 21.
“Then the Philistines seized him, gouged out his eyes and took him down to Gaza. Binding him with bronze shackles, they set him to grinding grain in the prison.”
Samson grinds grain in prison as shown in this painting.
This grinding mill motif is seen in myths worldwide.
In the introduction of the book Hamlet’s Mill it says this about a particular mill that ground out three things.
Amlodhi (HAMLET) was identified, in the crude and vivid imagery of the Norse, by the ownership of a fabled mill which, in his own time, ground out peace and plenty. Later, in decaying times, it ground out salt; and now finally, having landed at the bottom of the sea, it is grinding rock and sand, creating a vast whirlpool, the Maelstrom (i.e., the grinding stream, from the verb mala, “to grind”), which is supposed to be a way to the land of the dead. This imagery stands, as the evidence develops, for an astronomical process, the secular shifting of the sun through the signs of the zodiac which determines world-ages, each numbering thousands of years. Each age brings a World Era, a Twilight of the Gods. Great structures collapse; pillars topple which supported the great fabric; floods and cataclysms herald the shaping of a new world.
The image of the mill and its owner yielded elsewhere to more sophisticated ones, more adherent to celestial events. In Plato’s powerful mind, the figure stood out as the Craftsman God, the Demiurge, who shaped the heavens; but even Plato did not escape the idea he had inherited, of catastrophes and the periodic rebuilding of the world.
Tradition will show that the measures of a new world had to be procured from the depths of the celestial ocean and tuned with the measures from above, dictated by the “Seven Sages,” as they are often cryptically mentioned in India and elsewhere. They turn out to be the Seven Stars of Ursa, which are normative in all cosmological alignments on the starry sphere. These dominant stars of the Far North are peculiarly but systematically linked with those which are considered the operative powers of the cosmos, that is, the planets as they move in different placements and configurations along the zodiac. The ancient Pythagoreans, in their conventional language, called the two Bears the Hands of Rhea (the Lady of Turning Heaven), and called the planets the Hounds of Persephone, Queen of the Underworld. Far away to the south, the mysterious ship Argo with its Pilot star held the depths of the past; and the Galaxy was the Bridge out of Time. These notions appear to have been common doctrine in the age before history-all over the belt of high civilizations around our globe. They also seem to have been born of the great intellectual and technological revolution of the late Neolithic period.
Every cycle has a part of it where the old mill wheel falls off as it moves from age to age and the whole house comes crashing down.
The first wheel grinds out plenty.
The next wheel grinds out salt.
The last wheel is thrown into the sea where it causes a maelstrom.(Maelstrom literally meaning “mill stream.”)
Strangely the book of revelation talks about a great millstone also.
Rev 18: 21
And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast [it] into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.
It is the millstone that comes crashing down,causing a maelstrom that brings down the world structure of Babylon,(the feminine force in nature that has sold herself/prostituted/contracted herself out to her lovers),rather than the pure woman who holds the child lovingly in her arms.
Remember Babylon the great sits by many waters…not a good place to be when the swirling mill stone is thrown into them.
Again it’s not evil,just the contrasting force to the perceived (at our level) good feminine force.
Nature out of balance! (Koyaanisqatsi) and natures own way of bringing the balance back…everything has it’s tides!
Her lovers have also come to their doom,at cosmic and other levels.Adam and Eve are again collapsed and what was Malkuth becomes Keter.
The searched for kingdom now becomes the new crown (Malkuth means kingdom and Keter means crown).
(Seek first the kingdom,then you shall receive your crown and become Kings and Priests)
Adam and Eve are the two pillars on the tree of life which are collapsed for the new Adam and Eve (male and female polarities) to take their place,as they go to the new tree of life.
Anybody that watched the film “Knowing” (gnosis) will understand that is what the ending is showing.
The older order is collapsed and the new polarities go to the new Eden.
This is what Aleister Crowley means when he says this.
“By a flick of the wrist, she can be transmuted to appear as the original Yod, and repeat the whole process from the beginning.”
Notice he says this at the bottom of the page.
The fool tarot card in the Thoth deck has the fool coming out from the 3 swirls. (the final “Heh” swirl becomes the new kingdom in his heart.
This legend of the mill/potters wheel is told throughout the world (Also think of Judas buried in the potters field)
Let’s have a look at some of the legends.
Notice again the three mills…wealth,salt and maelstrom.
The Mill of Wealth
King Fróði of Denmark is renowned for his peace and his wealth. He buys two strong slave girls Fenja and Menja from Sweden. The quernstones that are to form Grotti are found in Denmark and are given to Fróði by a man with a giant’s name (Hengikjøptr) (SnE). In Grs 10–12 Fenja and Menja claim to have discovered these millstones long ago. They caused earthquakes when they dislodged the stones from the earth. Grotti would produce whatever the grinder bade. No one but Fenja and Menja was strong enough to turn it.
Fróði made the giantesses grind gold, peace and prosperity. He granted them almost no rest. They sang Grottasøngr as they worked. Furious at Fróði’s cruelty to them they ground out an army, and a sea-king Mýsingr came and slew Fróði (SnE); in Grs there is merely a foretelling of Fróði’s overthrow. The quern breaks, and the milling must stop (Grs). The end of Fróði’s reign is marked by thunderings and lightnings, earthquakes, the disappearance of the sun, and the upsetting of prognostications. Thus Fróði’s peace came to an end.
The Salt Mill
Mýsingr takes Grotti, Fenja and Menja. He bids them grind salt. They grind until the excess of salt sinks the ship. This causes the sea’s saltiness.
The Whirlpool Mill
There is now a whirlpool where the sea fell into the eye of the quern. Comparable are traditions about the Mælström, which was regarded as a ‘grinder of ships’, if not a mill.
Of the three motifs, the poem contains only the first; the salt mill and the whirlpool mill may be later additions of common folk tales to the myth. However, the poem focuses on the demise of Frodi after the cracking of the stone, and may have excluded these elements deliberately.
The final whirlpool mill grinding the ships is alluded to in the book of revelation.
“‘Woe! Woe to you, great city,
where all who had ships on the sea
became rich through her wealth!
In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’
These three whirlpool/millstones/rotating forces are those represented by the 3 swirling forces at Newgrange.
The three witches in Macbeth,stirring the cauldron.
or Ain/Ain soph/Ain soph aur of kabbalah.
Kether is the new “fool” who comes out of the darkness/womb of the three feminine forces.
Remember the feminine part of the year is ruled by Saturn (hence the dark Satanic mills of Blake) and in the darkest part of the daily/yearly/great yearly cycle the new day arrives,(although not dawn). This dark time when the sun is present but not yet active is the parousia…it is alongside us but not yet in power.
These three dark satanic mills give birth to the New Jerusalem/the new child!
“And was Jerusalem builded here,
Among these dark Satanic Mills?”
Read through the wiki page above and notice that Blake is alluding to more than just the mills of England’s industrial age.
Particularly this passage.
“An alternative theory is that Blake is referring to a mystical concept within his own mythology related to the ancient history of England. Satan’s “mills” are referred to repeatedly in the main poem, and are first described in words which suggest neither industrialism nor ancient megaliths, but rather something more abstract: “the starry Mills of Satan/ Are built beneath the earth and waters of the Mundane Shell…To Mortals thy Mills seem everything, and the Harrow of Shaddai / A scheme of human conduct invisible and incomprehensible”.
Do you grasp what Blake is saying?He is referring to these three sisters/forces…Ain/Ain Soph/Ain Soph Aur…in the stars they are grinding out plenty,on the earth grinding out salt (the salt of the earth) and finally the maelstrom of the sea mill,which grinds out the old and births the new!
Jesus uses the imagery of the millstone being thrown into the sea also at Matthew 18:6
“If anyone causes one of these little ones–those who believe in me–to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
Old father time/Saturn/Satan the ruler of this world,is the one in the wheels within wheels……Saturn truly is the Lord Of The Rings!
Shaddai is Saturn/Satan the shady one…the shadow,who gives the gift of light to all mankind at the winter solstice in the form of Santa giving us the gift of the new Messiah…Jesus at Christmas,the darkest time of the year. Ho Ho Ho!
If any of this makes any sense to you,please,will you explain it to me!….he he!
For further reading…I leave you with some links all discussing this world myth.
Thanks for reading!!!
Hello,fellow peoples of the planet!
Before this blog gets underway,I would again like to talk a little about my former religion…as the title of this blog “Thinking outside the box,” is the last thing any Jehovah’s Witness would be allowed or able to do,without disobeying the organization.
As an example of this,ask any Jehovah’s witness you know, to tell you the date of Jesus’ “presence” or “arrival” on this earth and they will give you one date….1914!
They are constantly told that this 1914 date is a solid fact,and “The Watchtower” has always consistently taught this.Take these examples below.
1/”Jehovah’s witnesses pointed to the year 1914, decades in advance, as marking the start of “the conclusion of the system of things.” Awake! 1973 Jan 22 p.8.
Notice it says in the above passage that “the conclusion of the system of things” started in 1914,and that they pointed to this decades in advance.
2/In 1993…the Watchtower was saying this.
“The Watchtower has consistently presented evidence to honesthearted students of Bible prophecy that Jesus’ presence in heavenly Kingdom power began in 1914.” Watchtower 1993 Jan 15 p.5
However,since the rank and file members are not allowed to think outside their box,they are completely hamstrung as to offering any argument against anyone who has an informed/opposite view of things.
In fact Jehovah’s Witnesses actually taught that Jesus arrived in 1874, (not 1914) up until the year 1943! “Not a lot of JW’s know that” (in a Michael Caine voice”) :).
Here are two clippings from 1921/1922 showing they were still teaching that Jesus arrived in 1874 (not 1914) during the 1920’s.(Whereas,now they claim they have consistently taught he arrived in 1914)
The book “God’s Kingdom of a Thousand Years Has Approached” (written in 1973) says this at the bottom of page 209 and the top of page 210.
“In the year 1943 the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society published the book “The Truth Shall Make You Free.” This moved forward the end of six thousand years of man’s existence into the decade of the 1970’s. Naturally this did away with the year 1874 C.E. as the date of return of the Lord Jesus Christ and the beginning of his invisible presence or parousia. Page 324 of the above book positively says: “The King’s presence or parousia began in 1914.”” God’s Kingdom of a Thousand Years Has Approached p.209/210.
So according to the above quote they didn’t “do away” with the date of Jesus invisible presence from 1874 to 1914……until 1943!
Note also the use of the word “Naturally,” as if it’s no big deal.Yet Charles Taze Russell(died 1916) and Joseph Franklin Rutherford(died 1942,the year before the change) had no clue about this teaching…it wasn’t “naturally” at all! It was an uprooting of old doctrines and a planting of new doctrines.It was an upheaval!
I certainly never knew any of these teachings all the years I was a Jehovah’s Witness,and I know the vast majority of JW’s have no clue.They are taught that to question or look at any outside evidence,will both “confuse them” and will inevitably bring the wrath of Jehovah upon them.They will be thrown out of the organization.
Friends and family will no longer be able to speak to them.
Now that my friends is living “inside a box.” (a box of the mind).
It reminds me of the book and film “1984” where previous “inconvenient information” is put into the “memory hole.”
It is a box that sounds so easy to open,it only takes a change of mind after all.
Yet it is the box of the mind,and the vast majority of JW’s will die for their (completely false) beliefs.
They are literally spellbound!…Their mind is “captive to a concept.”
They have a concept/spell or worldview in their minds and imaginations,that is found to be absurd with even the most cursory investigation.
See a previous blog “what’s in a word” for more on how words control our minds.
Another thing I’d like to bring up,before the blog gets underway is the bible story of David and Bathsheba,and take it from the “literal” to the beautiful myth that it is.
Here’s a few of the verses from the book of 2nd Samuel,chapters 11 and 12 telling the story.
1/”In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war, David sent Joab out with the king’s men and the whole Israelite army. They destroyed the Ammonites and besieged Rabbah. But David remained in Jerusalem.
2/ One evening David got up from his bed and walked around on the roof of the palace. From the roof he saw a woman bathing. The woman was very beautiful, 3 and David sent someone to find out about her. The man said, “She is Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam and the wife of Uriah the Hittite.” 4 Then David sent messengers to get her. She came to him, and he slept with her. (Now she was purifying herself from her monthly uncleanness.) Then she went back home. 5 The woman conceived and sent word to David, saying, “I am pregnant.”
David,the warrior-king spies the beautiful Bathsheba bathing while out on his roof one night.
He then sends his messengers to bring her to him,which she does and then he proceeds to sleep with her…and then gets her pregnant.
The only problem is,she’s already married to Uriah,one of David’s most loyal soldiers.
So what does David do?
He orders Uriah be sent to the front line of battle,where he is left to perish,as told in the verses below.
15 “Put Uriah out in front where the fighting is fiercest. Then withdraw from him so he will be struck down and die.”
17 When the men of the city came out and fought against Joab, some of the men in David’s army fell; moreover, Uriah the Hittite died.
After a time of mourning,Bathsheba marries David and they have a son.However,we learn that God isn’t best pleased with this arrangement in verse 27.
“But the thing David had done displeased the Lord.”….(Uh Oh…King David is in trouble!!)
So God sends the prophet Nathan to David,who proceeds to tell him the following story.
“The Lord sent Nathan to David. When he came to him, he said, “There were two men in a certain town, one rich and the other poor. 2 The rich man had a very large number of sheep and cattle, 3 but the poor man had nothing except one little ewe lamb he had bought. He raised it, and it grew up with him and his children. It shared his food, drank from his cup and even slept in his arms. It was like a daughter to him.
4 “Now a traveler came to the rich man, but the rich man refrained from taking one of his own sheep or cattle to prepare a meal for the traveler who had come to him. Instead, he took the ewe lamb that belonged to the poor man and prepared it for the one who had come to him.”
5 David burned with anger against the man and said to Nathan, “As surely as the Lord lives, the man who did this must die! 6 He must pay for that lamb four times over, because he did such a thing and had no pity.”
7 Then Nathan said to David, “You are the man!”
David realizes the utter devastation he has caused….as punishment,the son he had with Bathsheba falls ill and dies.(A bit cruel to the innocent child don’t you think)
The thoroughly repentant and chastised David,comforts Bathsheba and they have another son.
24 “Then David comforted his wife Bathsheba, and he went to her and made love to her. She gave birth to a son, and they named him Solomon.”
It’s a pretty gruesome tale of deceit,murder and lust,but not to worry folks…..it isn’t real!
If you’ve been reading any of the previous blogs,you should be getting a grasp of the symbolism going on,because that is what it is…symbolism that tells us great things.
David is Mars….The Warrior King….and Bathsheba is Venus…the beautiful woman!
It is the tale of the two concepts or forces in yet another variation of the story.Whether it be the Knight at arms and the beautiful woman without mercy in the poem of Keats,or Romeo and Juliet in the story by Shakespeare.
Mars is the God of war,as is David the warrior king (Mars rules Aries,the start of spring).If you look again at verse 1 of the above passage of scripture it reads “In the spring, at the time when kings go off to war.“
Spring starts in the month of March,and March comes from Mars!So of course they go off to war when Mars is on the scene!
Another thing that should help clue you in that we are talking astrology and the seven planets here is the name Bathsheba.
Bathsheba means “daughter of the seven” (The Queen of Sheba,should also mean something to you now)
The name “Solomon” means peace/harmony/wholeness…of course it does!
Again we have two of the seven planets contained in his name….Sol (the sun) and Mon (the moon).
When the sun and moon come together we have the holy marriage…the hieros gamos!
The balance of the male and female forces in nature(the two poles). When the two forces are balanced,there is harmony,when one side is stronger than the other,there is disharmony,and in us..bi-polar thinking/or black and white thinking…extremism!
Think of plate spinning,when the plate is balanced and centred,it will stay on the pole,however when the plate goes off balance by the pole not staying in the centre,due to the plate slowing,it is only a matter of time before things come crashing down.
Here are another few symbols of “Solomon”,or harmony/wholeness/peace below.
We can learn other things from this tale above.
The Messiah came from this family tree,in effect telling us that out of David’s (divides) unspeakable sin….perfection is born.
Out of the worst times,the saviour will come,out of the refuse of the sea,and out of the intense irritation and discomfort of the grit,the oyster will form a pearl.
Out of the worst situations in your life,even as a woeful consequence of your own mistakes…at some point the absolute best will arrive,if you keep going,keep your plate spinning! (the book of Job is telling us the same story in another form).
As is the book of Revelations,when it tells us of bad times on earth,yet the lamb is in the distance.(The light inevitably has to return….the cycle of god cannot be broken)
Before we get on to talk about the symbolism of the Hermetic Rose Cross,as promised in the last blog.Let us have another quick link between Isis/The weeping virgin and Saturn(Old Father time),again as has been discussed in the last few blogs.
This time we can see the link between the two on the American dollar.Now on previous blogs we saw that the alchemical colour of Venus and Saturn are respectively green and black.(See table 1 on the website below)
We see yet another coincidence in that the colours of the dollar bill are green and black (they are called greenbacks).However,that may just be a coincidence..right?However we find more interesting symbolism on the dollar itself….we find the six pointed star of Saturn or Remphan also on the dollar.
Saturn is connected with the number 6….Saturn has a hexagon on it’s north pole.
And we have the virgin represented by the actual dollar sign…let’s have a look.
Now have a look at the Wikipedia entry below.
If you read the above Wikipedia page you will find that a lot of what is spoken of in this blog…the two pillars etc,are all found in there.
Money is the current (currency) of this world,it is the juice that fuels the machines of commerce.The two pillars above are also the two poles,the Jachin and Boaz,Anode and Cathode.The snake (serpent) is the electricity (orgasm) between the male and female that generates new life.
And aren’t sperm also like little serpents or snakes? (As above so below..as within so without).
Next blog I will talk about the Succoth-Benoth,or “the festival of booths of daughters” in the bible.
And give an alternative rendering of what it means in the bible,it will also continue the connection between Saturn and Venus/Old father time and the weeping virgin.
And with all that out of the way (phew),finally back to this blog about the Hermetic Rose Cross.
And here it is below in all it’s glory!
Click on the image to find a little white surprise in the centre of the rose.
The little white dot represents pure existence without size and dimension…it is infinite potentiality.
Kabbalists call this the ain,ain soph,ain soph aur…..three parts of nothingness that cannot be grasped.It is the germ of creation before creation begins.
It is symbolized in many other ways,by differing peoples..
But the rose and cross all stems from this little white dot.
But if we go even further inside the white point,the mystical teachings tell us that we are actually presented with a white cube.This is where again the 22 Hebrew letters,22 major tarot cards,the 22 connections of the tree of life between the 10 spheres,and also the Sefer Yetzirah come in….and you will hopefully see yet further connections to this amazing rose cross symbol above.
For the cube to even be a cube,a single point needs to spread out into three dimensions…namely up-down.left-right,forward and back…….the three!
The three dimensions then create seven positions (centre and six sides…see the previous blog “at sixes and sevens” for more on this) which give us the seven!
And twelve edges to the cube…….Gives us the twelve!
As long as the cube or box is sealed…the whole of creation is put on hold,and as the amazing Lon Milo Duquette says (from whom I get a lot of this info) “it remains in a state of brooding potentiality.” They are the forest of trees hidden in the depths of the acorn.The inner that produces the outer.
It reminds me of Schrodingers cat…..is the cat in the box alive or dead…it’s only when you open it,or give attention to it,that it will give up it’s secret.It also reminds me of the double slit experiment..or wave particle duality….the waves become particles,only when observed/given attention.
In religion..prayed for!
Bringing something out of the nothing/ain sof by intense thought and yearning!
For the cube to initiate creation it must sacrifice itself on a cross,as it pops open like the rose cross above! (again see previous blog for more info).
We must think outside the box for it to happen to us,and when we do we move from potentiality to actuality….the little white cube opens to form the cross of six squares.(can you see this cross above?)
This is also telling us how spells work…and inventions!
When thought is given to the wave (observing),it manifests into this reality and becomes the particle!
Or when an inventor thinks intensely about an idea..and works on it with his hands….it becomes a reality…he has plucked it from the nothing and brought it into the material!
Or as Isis says…(Isis is the darkness)..”The fruit I bring forth is the sun”…she brings things from the darkness of thought into the light of this material existence!
However when we have our “boxing day” and we open the box…it reveals it’s secret treasure for us…it gives us a “gift.”
That gift is the rose of five petals….we have allowed the fifth element to resurrect us from the four elements to the fifth element…and we ourselves become like the Vitruvian man.
“Every man and woman is a star”
Adam is made in the image of God etc.
Understanding that the rose of our being is wedded to the cross of the six is the goal of every spiritual seeker…and when we do,we realize that we aren’t a five or six,but an eleven…and again as Mr Duquette says….this is what is called “the great work.”
Behind the rose are four green barbs(you can’t really see them too well in the above pic,but they stand for four directions or “position,time,dimension and space.”).
When it does open,the small rose gives birth to the larger rose consisting of 22 petals,split into 3,7 and 12 leaves.(Again just as the Sefer Yetzirah talks about.)
In the three leaves pictured….the top leaf has the letter “Aleph” on it..the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet..Aleph also corresponds to the element “Air” and “The fool” tarot card.
The leaf on the left has the letter “Mem” on it…it corresponds to the element “Water” and “The hanged man” in the tarot.
The leaf on the right has the letter “Shin,” it is the element of fire and “The Aeon or Last Judgement/Resurrection” card in the tarot. (Isn’t it interesting that the bible says this world will end with fire…as the last one did with water).
We are talking two polarities…fire and water…male and female, and the balance/equator between the two principles!..the wavy line in the yin/yang…..the sine wave!
The secret of creation is in the wave!
Also interesting to note is what the kybalion says about the principle of rhythm.
Note also that “aleph” is a yellow petal,”mem” a blue petal,and “shin” a red petal…these are the three primary colours.
Next we have seven petals,corresponding to the 7 planets,and it consists also of the 7 primary and secondary colours of the rainbow (and seven musical notes).
Going anti-clockwise from the 11 o’clock position,they are (letter,planet and tarot card) “Peh,Mars and the Tower”-Resh,The Sun and “The Sun” tarot card-Beth,Mercury and the Magician/Magus”-Daleth,Venus and the Empress-Gimel,the Moon and the High Priestess-Tav (although the above rose cross pic looks like the letter “Cheth” for some reason),Saturn and the World or Universe tarot card….and finally Kaph,Jupiter and the wheel of fortune card.
The last to burst forth are the twelve petals of primary,secondary and intermediate colours…the 12 signs of the zodiac.
Starting from top left and going anti-clockwise,we have the letters Heh,Vav,Zain,Cheth,Teth,Yod,Lamed,Nun,Samekh,Ayin,Tzaddi,Gimel.
These letters correspond respectively with the 12 signs of the zodiac….
Aries,Taurus,Gemini,Cancer,Leo,Virgo,Libra,Scorpio,Sagittarius,Capricorn,Aquarius and Pisces.
And the 12 tarot cards…Emperor,Hierophant,Lovers,Chariot,Strength or lust(for life),Hermit,Adjustment/Justice,Death,Art/Temperance,Devil,Star and Moon.
So we have looked at two roses thus far,the small rose on the small cross,and the large rose…which is also on a larger cross.
The large rose and cross represent concepts,principals,forces and energies of the manifest universe.
The Hebrew mystics invented the four letters YHVH in order to meditate and analyse the vast oneness.(The all)They divided “the all” into four parts,as did all other cultures…4 directions,four winds,four seasons/4 corners of the earth..etc etc.They were either pictured by four animals,people,letters,symbols,and we can see the four worldwide in myths and paintings or carvings.(see previous blogs)
In Kaballah…the four are Atziluth,Briah,yetzirah and Assiah.These are the four levels of the macrocosm.
The microcosm is also divided into the four descending levels of the soul..Chiah…then Neshema,Ruach and Nephesh.
The four elements picture the same idea……Fire,water,air and earth.
And finally in the Tarot as Wands(clubs),Cups(hearts),Swords(spades) and Disks(diamonds).
The four arms of the large cross each represent one of these concepts..the left arm(red)represents Fire,the right arm(blue)is Water,the top arm(yellow) is Air,the lowest extremity of the bottom arm(green/brown) is Earth…The white square right below the rose is white and represents the fifth element…(ether). It does not belong to any of the suits alone…it pervades all of them,as it pervades everything in creation.
Lon Milo Duquette again tells us that everything consists of the four elements,and gives the illustration of hot magma which consists of fire(heat),water(it flows),earth(by nature) and exudes air (gas and steam).
A lovers quarrel is fiery(explosive),watery(emotions/tears)and airy(swift and communicative).
The “something” that binds the four elements and gives them their varying structure is the fifth element(spirit) and spirit is represented by the pentagram,and sometimes by the letter “e”…the fifth letter.
The rose cross arms also contain some symbols on them..let’s have a further look!
Notice the pentagrams on each of the arms are all coloured different.They symbolize the five elements.Around each of the pentagrams are the symbols for the five elements,earth,air,fire,water and on top…spirit(the fifth element)
The white part below the centre with the star of David..is the 7 planets….The Sun is in the middle of the star of David…..See the blog sixes and sevens for more info!
At the extremities of the four arms are the 3 alchemical elements of sulphur,mercury and salt.
See them top left in this diagram.
Just as in the game paper,scissors,stone…none of the three have the upper hand,but each can “defeat” the other…the same principle applies to these three universal forces,therefore the cycle cannot become stagnant or stop…it is constantly in flux.One constantly trumps the other.
You will notice they are in different positions on the limbs of the cross,showing this continuous changing or flux.
The three symbols correspond with the three tarot cards..the Magus (Mercury),The Emperor (Sulphur) and the Empress (Salt).
In fact on the Emperor tarot card it shows his body position making the alchemical sign of sulphur…the triangle with the cross beneath.
These three principles are recognized in other cultures….look at the “Three Gunas” of Hindu philosophy….. Sattva,Raja and Tamas (interesting name Tamas..and what it stands for… if you’ve been following the blog that is!).
“Sattva” is the balance,harmony (Mercury),”Raja” is the active and passionate(Sulphur) and Tamas is the darkness and destructive (Salt). (Hmm..Lot’s wife turned into a pillar of salt..did she not?)
You can see the three principles on the cycle that they bring about on the “Wheel of fortune” tarot card.
Anubis is sometimes even called “Hermanubis”
You can google the rest of the symbols on the rosy cross for yourself,or even better,try to obtain “the book of Thoth” By Aleister Crowley and “Understanding Aleister Crowley’s book of Thoth” for yourself if you are grasping any of this.It is good to find the hidden meanings and treasures for yourself.
You can find out why all the letters are on the four barbs,and what they stand for…the INRI for instance…first find the outer exoteric meaning…and then the inner hidden esoteric meaning.
And if you got through all of that….thanks for reading!…please share this blog if it might be of interest to anyone.
Hello fellow peoples of the planet!
To begin,adding to the theme of recent blogs,highlighting the link between Isis (the eternal virgin) and Saturn (Old Father Time/Grim Reaper). I would like to post this passage from the book “The Secret Teachings of All Ages” where Manly Palmer Hall tells us the following.
The Eternal Virgin Isis represents “matter/nature” and Saturn is the force that gives structure to matter.He holds the cube of space together.(see below for more on this)
For example…in the human body,Saturn (remember Saturn in astrology/alchemy is a force and concept) rules the skeletal system.(please read the whole article below if you can as it will familiarize you with the different concepts and correspondences of Saturn beyond ruling the skeletal system,and in doing so will give you a wider understanding of all of its attributes)
What that means is that,in our body,as in nature….Saturn provides the framework that the body and nature (Isis) both need to build on….(if we didn’t have the skeleton the body would be a pile of goo!)
(And you will also click why Satan (Saturn) is usually connected with skeletons…and the skull and crossbones)
All of the properties or characteristics that have been attributed to Satan throughout history are due to astrology and the planet Saturn.
For example Satan is often represented as a goat (Capricorn is the goat,ruled by Saturn),the colours black and red are due to the colours attributed to both Saturn (black) and Mars (red) (Saturn rules Capricorn,Mars exalts in Capricorn),skeletons are due to Saturn ruling the skeletal system.Saturn rules Capricorn which starts at the winter solstice (the midnight of the year) hence he rules the darkness.Winter is the time of death and Satan is connected to death and destruction.The number six is the number of both man and Satan.
It all comes from the mystery teachings of this Satanic/Saturnic force!
More links between Isis/the weeping virgin and Saturn in future blogs as we continue connecting the two.
Also before this blog gets underway…..I would like to show how the influences of the zodiac,astrology and alchemy surround all of us,but most of us don’t see it until we achieve a certain level of pattern recognition.
This is why Jesus says the following….
“He said, “The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of God has been given to you, but to others I speak in parables, so that, “‘though seeing, they may not see; though hearing, they may not understand.'”
Astrological motifs surround us,in every facet of our world.
For instance…the seven planets and their metals are the following…
And with the eyes of understanding of the seven classical planets…you will see two male planets…..and two female!
Showing the four elements of earth,air,fire and water.
Why four planets (four elements) out of three medals?
Well let’s see….
The winner gets gold.
Second gets silver.
And third gets bronze.
The Gold Medal represents the Sun.
The Silver medal represents the Moon.
The two benefics in astrology are Jupiter and Venus. (Mars and Saturn are the two malefics)
Look again at the table above and you will see the metals of the two beneficial planets are the following…Jupiter’s metal is Tin…and Venus’s metal is copper.
When copper and tin are alloyed together….you get…..Bronze!
And of course you would only have the metals of beneficial planets given to those who do well in their sport!
They just happen to correspond with astrology and alchemy.
And it’s not by chance I would suggest,it’s because these symbols resonate deep within us…..the Gold medal represents the sun which in turn represents light and goodness and growth…the Sun is the King after all.
Once you get a hang of the zodiac,which planet rules which sign,what metals correspond and on and on……you will start to connect things you see.
here’s an example…..The Royal Bank of Scotland sign is this.
Most people will look at a sign or symbol and give it no thought at all.
Can you see the four seasons of three months in this symbol?……can you see the cross of the zodiac….can you see the twelve?
Isn’t it similar to this?
Look around yourself and start connecting…it is everywhere.
Think of the four squares of Microsoft Windows with a cross in the middle of them(again the four seasons/elements/tetragrammaton)…or what about the logo of Apple.
Now back to this blog.
“Within the Wave lies the secret of all Creation”
Below is the wave Walter Russell is referring to.
In the bible book of Genesis it tells us that God (actually Elohim) created the earth in six days….and on the seventh he rested.
Now ponder on this…at the very left of the zodiacal sine wave is the sign of Aries,and Aries represents the dawn/the beginning/the spring equinox/the return of light from the six months or 12 hours of darkness of the year and day respectively.
Now think about the first words in the bible…..
1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. 2 Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
3 And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. 4 God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
Now if Aries is the “dawn” of the year and represents the return of light….Aries represents the first day of creation,and every day the dawn is literally a “Let there be light” moment!
And in the year the Passover and Easter represent….”Let there be light” or “Fiat Lux!”,as they bring light to the year in the form of the yearly dawning.
The Passover and Easter both represent the first part of creation or growth on the earth……do animals not create their offspring,do plants not start growing around this time?…..and all for the six months of the year…..the royal arch…the six days of creation!
And God (God is light) or the Sun “rests” or stops its work on the seventh “day” or seventh sign of the zodiac…namely Libra as it heads down into perdition where all the growth comes to ruin during the dark days of winter…..only returning to bring life again in six months time.
In the bible story of the fall of Jericho…again we have the six and seven just like the Genesis creation account..In this story we have the Israelites marching around the walls of the city for six days….on the seventh the priests were to blow their rams horns and the walls of Jericho would collapse.
Notice the themes of daybreak/dawn/spring.
Joshua 6:2-5 and 12-16
2/”Then the Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men. March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days. Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams’ horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets.”
12/”Joshua got up early the next morning and the priests took up the ark of the Lord. The seven priests carrying the seven trumpets went forward, marching before the ark of the Lord and blowing the trumpets. The armed men went ahead of them and the rear guard followed the ark of the Lord, while the trumpets kept sounding.14/So on the second day they marched around the city once and returned to the camp. They did this for six days.On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times.The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the Lord has given you the city!”
Yet again we refer to the sine wave above to realize that in the verses above,the bible is talking allegorically about coming out from the six months of darkness/winter/night.
If you’ve been following this blog from the beginning….the rams horns (Aries) should mean something to you,as should the name “Jericho” meaning “city of the moon.”
Out of the seven classical planets the moon is a feminine planet….it reflects the suns light,and continuing the female theme we usually see the moon at night…and night is the feminine/yin part of the 24 hour cycle….the dark half of the cycle of the day.
Now it should click that the blowing of the rams horns allegorically represents the sun entering into the sign of “Aries the Ram” bringing an end to the six months of Jericho/Moon/winter/night/darkness and a returning of the light/Ram/lamb/Easter/Passover/dawn/Sun.
It’s another way of telling us about the Lamb of God that takes away the sins/winter/night/darkness of the world!
The Jewish seven branched Menorah corresponds with the seven planets,but it also represents the seven posts of the royal arch of spring and summer,although there are six houses of the zodiac in the royal arch…there are seven branches/posts or pillars also.
Hopefully this drawing will show what I mean.
In Genesis 1:1 it says:-
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
The word for God in this verse is actually Elohim and in mystical teachings the Elohim represent the 7 planets.
The seven planets correspond with the numbers 1-7 as they also do to other numbers….symbols have many meanings.
The Moon gives us Monday…..the moon represents the number one….moon is an anagram of mono/mon.
Mars (gives us tuesday/twos day) is the God of war and division,and a symbol of Mars is the sword and the bible tells us that the word of God is a double edged sword….number two.
Mercury (Wednesday/Mercredi in french) or Hermes/Thoth is connected with the number three.
And Hermes is known as the “thrice greatest” “thrice” meaning “three.”
Jupiter or Jove is connected to the number four…Jove is Jehovah who is represented by the tetragrammaton…(four letters) and the symbol of Jupiter is like a stylized number four.
Venus as we have already seen in earlier blogs has a connection to the number five.
The planet Venus makes a five pointed star over an eight year period in it’s motions through the solar system.
And the apple has the five pointed star of Venus hidden inside.
Saturn has a connection to the number six…for example the character of Satan (who is made up of the characteristics of the planet Saturn) is connected with the number 6…or 666.
The six pointed star is also connected with the planet Saturn….as is the hexagon.
And doesn’t Saturn have a massive hexagon on its north pole?
Saturn/Satan can put a hex on you…and hex is the number six.
The Sun has a connection with the number seven as when the sun shines through rainclouds we get a seven coloured rainbow.
According to the international standard ISO 8601, Monday is the first day of the week ending with Sunday as the seventh day of the week. Although this is the international standard, countries such as the United States still have their calendars refer to Sunday as the start of the seven-day week.
So in the bible the Sabbath is Saturday…Saturn’s day and is the seventh day.
However according to ISO 8601 above,Saturday would be the sixth day of the week.
Saturn is at sixes and sevens also,according to the cube of space in the Sefer Yetzirah.
The cube of space (see earlier blogs for more information) is obviously a six sided cube…..but hidden inside that cube,holding together the cube of space and time is Saturn……represented by the letter “Tau” in Astrology.
This cube or box,is the box that gets opened at boxing day.
Santa in the Christmas ritual comes to punish wrongdoers and reward the good.
Santa arrives up till midnight,and sure enough the “midnight of the year” is the winter solstice right when Christmas is celebrated…..just as midnight is the darkest hour of the day…Christmas is the darkest time of the year.
The Santa story is telling us the story of nature.Santa is Saturn or Old father Time,he has a long white beard.Saturn is the principle or concept that arrives at the end of every cycle…….every cycle has its end point before beginning it’s next cycle…i.e the cycles of the day,the year….and the “Great Year.”
When the bible talks about the “end of the world” the word used is “aeon” and it really means “age.”
According to the hidden,esoteric teachings we are at the end of the old age and about to enter the new age.
The old ways and institutions must be eradicated before the new age begins.
For example as Moses who was the messiah taking the people from the old age of Taurus (Golden Calf) destroyed all those who were still worshipping the old age.
And the new age was about to begin for them….the age of Aries…and sure enough after that old age had gone….the Israelites were connected with sheep and lambs and shepherds….blowing the ram’s horn (shofar).
Then moving backwards again through the zodiac (see “precession of the equinoxes”),the next age to arrive was the age of Pisces…(the two fish) and right on cue Jesus arrives to usher the new age in,taking his followers from the old age of Aries to the new age of Pisces.
Look at this ancient Christian grave marking,showing that (whether they understood it or not) the two fish of the age of Pisces was used as a symbol.
And this archaeological discovery also.
However as we move around the big clock of the great year,we are coming to the end of the age of Pisces and moving into the age of Aquarius…..what are some things to look out for as the old age ends and new age begins?
First off,Jesus does talk about the age of Aquarius……at Luke 22:10.
“He replied, “As soon as you enter Jerusalem, a man carrying a pitcher of water will meet you. Follow him. At the house he enters”
The man carrying a pitcher of water is the zodiac symbol for the sign of Aquarius.
Men didn’t carry water in biblical times……hence that is why Jesus met the woman at the well….women collected water.
EARTH,WIND and FIRE (oh yeah and water!)
So lets see some symbolism from the bible as it tells us about the new ages arriving.
Moses was the messiah between Taurus and Aries….Taurus is an “earth” sign and Aries is a “fire” sign…so we should expect there to have been some connection with earth and fire back then…and there was!
Moses,when conversing with Jehovah,spoke to a “burning” bush and there we have the fire reference….and when Korah challenged Moses authority he and his followers were swallowed up by the earth.
In moving from the Age of Aries to the Age of Pisces we are now moving from a fire sign to a water sign,and from the sign of the lamb/sheep/ram to the sign of the fish.
So we should see those symbols surrounding Jesus.
Jesus (the LAMB of God) did say he was bringing a fire to the earth…however the element Jesus is most associated with out of the four elements (earth,air,fire and water) would be water.
Pisces is a water sign!
Pisces in body astrology is linked with the feet.(see earlier blogs)
Jesus is the Piscean Messiah!
He calmed the waves,he walked upon water,he told his followers to cast their nets into the water.
He preached from the water in a boat.
“He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little from shore. Then he sat down and taught the people from the boat.”
So what should we expect to see when the age moves from Pisces (water sign) to Aquarius (air sign)?…..there will be a connection to fish and fishes or fishing as the old age gives way….and we should also see a connection to flowing water/containers of water.
And sure enough the book of revelation backs this up as it says this about the new age.
The pouring out of water is an Aquarian motif.
Aquarius is an air sign…..so there will be a connection with air also.
Another theme that occurs during the changing of the ages is the theme of freedom from slavery.
Remember Moses was told to go up to the ruler of the old age (Pharaoh) and say to him….”Let my people go.”
“Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: “Let my people go“
The Messiah for the next aeon,Jesus,approached the Scribes and Pharisees and again talked about releasing them from their slavery.
“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you lock people out of the kingdom of heaven. For you do not go in yourselves, and when others are going in, you stop them.”
So the “Messiah” of the new age will speak up to the world rulers again telling them to release his followers.
In Moses time it was physical slavery in Egypt,in our modern time it is mental slavery.
And we ourselves are the only ones who can release ourselves from mental bondage.
Nobody else can do that for us,we need to awaken the Christ within us and he helps free us.When we do free ourselves….we come back to life…we get our minds back….we release ourselves from our tomb (box/cube).
This will happen to mankind at the darkest time on earth.This is what Christmas is telling us.At the darkest times,the light will again shine forth.
The tombs/boxes will be opened,as the illusions we have believed in crumble around us…..religion (religare means “to bind”),money (stocks and bonds are implements of slavery…are they not?).Whosoever can,will free themselves.
Jesus is the door to freedom.
Let me give an example of what I mean by that statement.
It was only when I allowed myself to question the watchtower society’s teachings,by accepting the force of light/truth/Jesus into my mind,that I was freed from the mental bondage (darkness/ignorance) that Jehovah’s witnesses are all under.
I managed to escape because I followed my own true conscience,no matter what or who tried to stop me.I did not succumb to peer pressure or conformity.
All religions claim to be the right religion,yet most people adhere to their religions,merely based on geographical location and family.
If you are born in Saudi Arabia,you most likely will follow a branch of Islam,in Italy you will likely be Roman Catholic.In India you will be Hindu or Buddhist..etc etc.
And yet under the surface of all religions lies sex,astrology and the zodiac.
To change your mind sounds so simple….yet it is very difficult to let go of old ways/habits and beliefs.
That is why the devil tarot card above shows us the people in slavery aren’t tied up too tight….the chains around their heads (minds) can be taken off at any time….but to free yourself from control of the mind is an internal struggle and one you can only do for yourself ultimately.
And when the cube (shackled mind) opens,it becomes the cross (mental freedom).
This is why Jesus arrives at midnight like Santa and judges people as Santa does…he gives rewards to the good and punishment to the evildoers.
“At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’ ‘No, ‘they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’ But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut“
The good ascend,they return to the father just like the prodigal son…and the others remain in the lake of fire (time),and into a new cube of space.(New Jerusalem)
The new Jerusalem comes down in the book of revelation in the shape of a new cube.
“The city was laid out like a square, as long as it was wide. He measured the city with the rod and found it to be 12,000 stadia in length, and as wide and high as it is long.”
The others who follow the lamb (light/truth) move back to source…to the ONE…..this is the meaning of the at-one-ment. (atonement).
The light means order and unity,darkness is division and confusion.
This is also why the Rosicrucians have this cross…….Lon Milo Duquette says the box/cube pops open like a kernel of popcorn to give us the image below.
Turning lead into Gold is another way of saying that we are moving from the six to the seven/cube to cross….why?
Lead is Saturn’s metal,Saturn is connected with the number six.
And when lead is turned into gold,Saturn is changed into the Sun…..Saturn is connected to 6 and the sun to 7…..changing 6 into 7.
We have moved from the darkness of lead into the lustre and light of gold.
Aleister Crowley is termed “The great beast 666” by society.
And yet one of his most famous books is this.
Do you remember the story of beauty and the beast?
People were scared of that beast,and tried to kill him,and yet that beast was transformed into a prince.(All wasn’t as it seemed)
When our ignorance,superstition and fear is left behind us and we look into “forbidden” “beastly” occult literature then our minds are opened and light can enter.
It also happened to me when I started reading “apostate/beastly” literature exposing the Jehovah’s Witness religion as being totally wrong,that my mind was freed from it’s shackles.
I was “enlightened” by that so called apostate literature,it brought me out of my darkness and ignorance.
Lead turned into gold…..6 turned into 7!
In the next blog we will break down what all the symbolism on the rosy cross is telling us.
Thanks for reading!
Please share if you find these blogs to be of any interest to you.
The one eyed man is king!
In this blog we will find out about Dhritarashtra (the blind king in the Bhagavad Gita) and what he symbolizes.
I also speak about my former blindness as a Jehovah’s witness and yet thinking my eyes were wide open at the time.
And what it means to have a simple or single eye.
King James Bible
The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
Hello fellow peoples of the planet!
I thank you for visiting my wee blog.
Before this blog gets going however………
At the end of the previous blog I said that “Old Man Thames” was “Old man Tammuz” (Thomas) or “Old Father Time” who is in fact Saturn.
Adding further on to that,there is also a part of the Thames river that is called the River “Isis.”
And yet again there you have another coincidence,why?
Because Old Father Time (Saturn/Tammuz/Thames) and Isis/Venus/Mary (the eternal virgin) are connected and linked.
Why is Isis or the virgin weeping?…more in a later blog.
It is not a coincidence that the Thames has a stretch of water called the Isis because they are linked.
Old Father Time is Saturn or Satan,linked with the elements earth and water…the feminine elements that correspond to the female and winter/night/darkness/material/dense/cold part of nature.
Earth and Water can also be represented by the land(earth) and the sea(water) and symbolized by the downward facing triangles.
This is what is being represented by the Thames and Isis rivers and father time and the weeping virgin……earth and water…or matter…and Saturn is the lord of matter….or as the bible says it….the ruler of this world.
In the book of Revelation chapter 10:2 we have another symbol of the two lower elements.
“He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land.”
Isis is also Mare and Mare/Mary is the sea as in Weston-super-Mare.
And Mary or Isis (the virgin) is connected to Saturn/Satan/Old Father Time through law.
Mari-time law…….Mari=Mary/sea/water and Time=Saturn.
In the sign of Libra the two meet also…Venus rules Libra and Saturn is exalted in Libra.
Libra is connected with law….the symbol of courts are the scales of justice and the scales of Libra,weights and measures and balance,then you have Venus on the roof holding the scales,Saturn the tester is represented by the judge…old father time,the devils advocate, saturnine procedures in court,while wearing the long white wig just as Saturn has his long white hair.
In the Garden of Eden,Satan and the virgin are together,Saturn and Virgo
And if you look back a couple of blogs I gave a list of correspondences in the terms and words connecting money and water.
It is Mari-Time law and the law of the sea.
Saturn rules Capricorn symbolized by the sea-goat……again the two elements earth and water.
Goat=earth/Saturn/Chronos and Fish=sea/water/Isis.
In horror films the two are linked also,think of Satanic/Saturnic films there is usually always a virgin getting sacrificed in them.
We are in the lower part of our zodiacal journey or the two lower elements earth and water.
We are in the underworld,the world of darkness and illusion
We are the earthy man,we are John the baptist like and we need to discover the Christ within us that will lift us up into the “heavenly” air and fire elements,and when we receive that baptism we raise ourselves from the water just as Jesus did at his baptism.
John baptized with water and he was a man of earth,he lived in the wilderness and ate locusts….see the two elements earth and water.
Jesus baptizes with spirit (air) and fire.
John the Baptist says this at Matthew 3:11
“I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”
Jesus moved from the “Son of Man” to become “Son of God.”
He was moving to higher awareness/consciousness/the fountain from inside was flowing.
In the psalms it talks about the same things.
“He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.”
We are literally in the mud and mire of our bodies. (notice the word Mary/Miriam/Myra in the word mire) the feminine part of the zodiac cycle,also represented by matrix/mud/mudder (mother)/Ma’at/mater/matter.
We are immersed in dense matter!
Yet the bible says we escape (as do all religious texts)…again in amazing allegory!
First though I would like to talk a wee bit about the awakening experience I had as a JW and how it led me to a bigger awakening.
Below is an example of a Jehovah’s Witness awakening.
And a short video.
Once a JW begins to realize that the organization they belong to isn’t…what…they…once…thought it was……the scales literally fall from their eyes…..a wholly frightening/and yet exhilarating experience for those that go through it.
I had that earthquake.
Through the trauma it brought,it was also accompanied by a realization (real-eyes-ation),and ultimately a wisdom gaining experience…a new birth of sorts.
The first question I was asked by an elder and friend when I started to air my doubts about the organization was…“Where else can we go?”
Jehovah’s witnesses firmly believe and insist that their organization is the only true one…there is nothing outside of it except darkness,wickedness and chaos,and ultimately destruction.
Lets see an example of the kind of things said through their various magazines and books.
“Just as Noah and his God-fearing family were preserved in the ark, survival of individuals today depends on their faith and their loyal association with the earthly part of Jehovah’s universal organization.” (w06 5/15 p.22 par. 8 Are You Prepared for Survival?)
They are taught that if you are outside that “ark”…..there is no hope for you at all unless you are part of the Jehovah’s Witness organization.
Any Jehovah’s witness who happens to read this blog will have to agree that the Governing Body are God’s only true spokesperson on earth and there are no others.
Who really is the faithful and discreet slave?
However at the Australian Royal Commission (ARC) last year (which was investigating how institutions dealt with child abuse allegations),one of the Governing Body members (Geoffrey Jackson) said this.
He said it would be “presumptuous” to say they they are the only spokesperson God is using.
I believe Jehovah’s Witnesses have it wrong when they ask “where else can we go?”
Let’s have a look and see why.
They take that question from the scripture at John 6:68. (NIV)
“Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
They reason that if they aren’t the true religion,none of the others come near to them because they alone use the name Jehovah and preach door to door,do not use the cross or believe in the trinity….So they will ask you where else can we go,thinking there is no other place to go outside their organization.
However did you notice the scripture doesn’t say where else can we go…..but to whom shall we go!
To which the answer would be “Christ.”
And this is where we encounter one of the bibles great secrets.
“For God wanted them to know that the riches and glory of Christ are for you Gentiles, too. And this is the secret: Christ lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory.
The Christ is inside you…..you have an inauthentic self and an authentic self.
There is somewhere else to go,and it is a place where you will never be manipulated or duped by charlatans such as the Watchtower Society ever again.
There is no true religion outside of you,not one.
However you have to keep knocking,exerting yourself to find the narrow path by awakening your higher self within. (Christ).
The single eye,the chief cornerstone,enlightenment…..
You become both a King and a Priest in yourself.The law won’t come from outside you as written on stone tablets,the laws will be written on your heart.
Just as the sun rises at Easter and brings the barren earth to life,the Christ is an inner sun,that needs rise within you,to move you from the two lower elements,earth and water to the two higher or male elements,namely air and fire,the bible talks about it saying being caught up in the air.And the world being destroyed by fire
And when you do find that Christ within you as stated in a previous blog and repeated here,it will cause this to occur inside of you.
14 “but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
When a Jehovah’s Witness “awakens” and the word “awaken” is allowing your “single eye” to open…to see the light!….to see things as they actually are and not as you once believed,and it is one hell of a paradigm shift.
As said before it is harrowing and yet ultimately healing,it is also like an ascension or resurrection because you can see things from a higher perspective than you did previously,and you come to life and higher awareness…a new birth.
The keys of the zodiac,astrology,kaballah,sex and nature will open all the doors to the scriptures,myths,fairy tales,nursery rhymes and festivals.The more you study,the more you will see the links between them all,everywhere.
Even in films we find themes relating to finding this true (higher) self/Christ in you,and abandoning the lower self.
Freud called the lower self the “Id” and the entity known as the Id (“Id” entity or rather “identity”) deals with our basic instinctual drives,including the libido.
Some call this “base consciousness” and it is represented by the black and white floor of a masonic lodge….it is “black and white thinking” where one cannot see the grey areas which everything has,it is having polarized,superstitious and wave-like emotional views.
However the “Blazing Star” of the masonic lodge (Sirius) gives hope of light shining in the darkness,and those who follow it will gain enlightenment and find the Christ within,just as the “wise men”,”magi” or astrologers found the Christ by following Sirius.
Let’s see an example of this higher journey from the film “The Truman Show.”
Even the name of the film gives us a clue……the “True Man” show.
In the film we find the character “Truman Burbank” living in a totally fake world,a world of illusion.He is the star of a reality show where people watch his every move 24/7 and he is not aware of it.He is surrounded by actors who all play the role of friends,family and work colleagues etc etc.
However the “True Man” is stirring inside of him as he starts to question things and strangely enough one of the things that starts him questioning is a light falling from the ceiling of the large dome studio he is in.
What does the light say on it?
The next thing that follows is that all his “friends” and “colleagues” try to prevent him from following his journey to enlightenment,and he even starts to question his own sanity.
When I was a JW all of my friends and family were telling me I was going insane for even questioning that the religion might not be the truth.
I even started questioning myself…….was I seeing things all wrong?
Why couldn’t anyone else see what I was seeing?
However by pursuing what I thought was right through to the end gave me such an awakening,such a paradigm shift even though it felt like a crucifixion at the time……I really have a freedom of mind I would never trade for anything,even though I know my reputation,name and character is pretty much shredded among my former friends.
It cannot ever enter their minds that the religion could be wrong….never ever….the fault always lies with the one who leaves.
At the end of the “Truman Show” we see how he has ascended,had his crucifixion and gained his freedom.
We see the theme in other films like “The Matrix” where Neo Anderson (“Neo” means “New”,”Ander” means “Man” and “Son”…put it together and you get “New Son of Man”,and again like Truman,Neo finds out the world he is in isn’t real…it is an illusion and he has many trials to get through to gain his freedom from it.
It is the story of Christ….it is the story of Us,and the struggle to find the Christ within us,and the journey that begins with it.
Joseph Campbell recognized it and wrote about it,calling it the hero’s journey or monomyth. which just happens to have 12 stages,just like the zodiac which is a symbol of the journey.
It is also seen in the “Wizard of Oz” and “Star Wars”…”Harry Potter” and “Lord of the Rings.”
We see it in the story of Moses,Joseph,Daniel and Jesus among many others in the bible,because it is again naturally in our collective psyche,and all cultures talk about it in their own ways.
Let’s have a look at another version of this ubiquitous story,this time in the Bhagavad Gita,and you may notice some similarities to stories and characters that are encountered in the Bible.
“Bhagavad Gita” means “Song of the Lord” and it a part of the Mahabharata,an epic Indian poem.
The Bhagavad Gita tells the story of the war between two groups called the Pandavas and the Kauravas.
The Pandavas are the five sons of Pandu and Kunti,Pandu is the phallus/sun and Kunti is the vagina (cunt).
The male and female.
Pandu means yellow….yellow like the sun.
Kunti means “lover of the sun god” (or penis) for the penis is the sun on a lower plane,as the penis brings life to the earth as does the sun….both are connected with “the generation game.”
The five sons of Pandu are the 5 aspects of divine personality that reach out from fourfold matter….as illustrated below.
In fact all the Pandavas are aspects of the dormant “higher”or “good” parts of our personality,or “right brain” thinking,the right brain being the feminine receptive mode of thought where inspiration is derived from,the part of the brain that looks and yearns for the moments when light dawns on it. (the lover of the sun god)
However their father dies (no higher thought activity) and they are raised by their uncle…Dhritarashtra who is a good king….yet he is blind from birth.
He represents the highest aspect of the lower/carnal part of our nature…well intentioned,yet blind,just as those Jehovah’s witnesses cannot see the manipulation they are under,but yet they are well meaning people.
Jesus pictured it this way
“Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.”
The highest level of base consciousness cannot exceed the lowest level of higher thought.See the scripture below.
“Truly I tell you, among those born of women (earth/water) there has not risen anyone greater than John the Baptist; yet whoever is least in the kingdom of heaven(air/fire/higher elements) is greater than he.
“Abiding in the midst of ignorance, thinking themselves wise and learned, fools go aimlessly hither and thither, like blind led by the blind.”— Katha Upanishad
People who are seeking outside for the kingdom rather than inward,are chasing illusions….for which religion is true?
In Christianity alone there are more than 30,000 differing versions.
King James Bible
“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”
The Blind King (Dhritarashtra) also has 100 sons and these represent all the troubling negative thoughts we experience daily…anger…deceit…disgust…envy…greed…and the list goes on.
And yet they are the favourites of the blind king,they are the offspring of carnal thoughts……they are his sons after all.
So basically you have a story about light versus darkness,the black and white floor of the masonic lodge pictured above.
The Pandavas are the light and the sons of the blind king represent darkness.
Then it tells us that the blind king gives land to the Pandavas,meaning that the blind king is showing the higher self all the riches and desires that can be attained by the lower carnal mind…..riches,cars,big house,fame etc.
Duryodhana is the leader of the “bad guys” and also the eldest of the Kauravas,his name means “unconquerable warrior.”
Duryodhana is the deceiver inside us who keeps us wanting more and yet what we get is never enough,he keeps the desire insatiable/unconquerable.
Next Duryodhana gets Yudhishtira (another of the five Pandavas….the steady,balanced spiritual mind) into a dice game and Yudhishtira loses the gamble and goes into exile for 13 years…..in other words he gambled his birthright to desire and lost and found himself in bondage,until after 13 years something stirs and he wants his birthright back,and again challenges the blind king.
Can you see many bible stories in the above also…..Esau selling his birthright for a bowl of stew,Jesus being taken up to a high mountain and shown all the kingdoms of the world and tempted by the deceiver.
It is all about birthrights and claiming what is yours if only you can grasp it,however you have a fight on your hands as all the legends,myths,religious stories,and films tell us.
The Pandavas and the Kauravas eventually meet for battle at Kurukshetra and at the end of 18 days only 12 major warriors are left including the five Pandavas.
The battle of Kurukshetra is also the battle of Armageddon where again the conquerors stand on the mountain (ascension) alongside the lamb of god.
Or defeating Voldemort,Sauron,Goliath,Pharaoh in the story of Moses…..etc etc.
It is the battle each one of has to take to overcome the beast inside of all of us and conquer in the name of truth and light.
What is fascinating about it all is that so many cultures are talking about the same thing in a myriad of ways.
Yet at the end of the day…it is the same story being told….the greatest story ever told…the story of us!
There is no religion higher than truth!
Thanks for reading!
It’s About Time……….to talk about our old friend Saturn again!
Saturn and time are linked……..yes it’s……ahem….”time” to talk about the “Old One”….”The Ancient of Days”,”Old father time,””Chronos.”
He’s the one with the long white beard……..Who gives us our new “Messiah” or “Son of Man.” just as Santa gives gifts at Christmas. (Saturnalia)
The new sun for the new year starts at Christmas….as the old sun dies at the winter solstice.
“In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days (Saturn) and was led into his presence.
He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all nations and peoples of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.”
But before we do talk about Saturn let’s look again at the bible talking about the sheep and goats.
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46 “Then they (GOATS) will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous (SHEEP) to eternal life.”
Look again at my woeful attempt at drawing below to see that the bible is talking about the zodiac.
Now notice that the bottom left corner of the zodiac is winter/3 months of darkness.
And winter is ruled by Saturn/Satan…the horned one…the goat…Capricornus!
In the book of Daniel chapter eight it tells us about a ram fighting a goat also.
This is allegory of the fight between light and darkness.
However let us concentrate on the old goat this time.
In some places he was known as CERNUNNOS….or HERNE/CERN.
In Egypt he was known as SET OR SETH.
Set is a horned god…..
Satan also has horns……..because they are all depicting the same thing….namely attributes of winter ruled by Capricorn the Goat…the horned/earthy/material/solid (liquid water turns to solid ice in winter)/dark/chaotic/cold/deathly/dissolving/destructive part of the natural cycle of things.
Satan/Saturn is the ruler of this material world,the world of matter and density and restriction/binding.
Pan and Shiva also are horned Gods.
Isn’t it coincidental that we are looking out of this world into the universe to find life using…SETI?…..SET.
And in to the smallest parts looking for the God Particle….using CERN?
CERN has a statue of Shiva outside…..and Shiva is the God of destruction.
Its not evil…it’s because Saturn/Shiva/Satan is also the force that binds matter together and they are trying to unveil it…….to reveal what nature/Isis is hiding/veiling.
Why did I say above that Saturn is our friend?…isn’t Saturn the bad guy?
If you look through that article above we can see the following statement about the dance of Shiva.
“Secondly, the purpose of his (Shiva) dance is to release the souls of all men from the snare of illusion.”
We live in a world of illusion/maya.
An example of the illusion we live under….billions of people think their religion that they were born into is true and will fight AND die for it….yet they are all illusions…there is no true religion out there……we need to look inside….not outside……however at the core of all religions are natural symbols of nature and the zodiac,over which has been placed extravagant rituals and ceremonies which are merely the veil which hides the truth which the vast billions of adherents cannot see behind.
They worship at the outer courts of the temple.
At the lower parts of secret societies they only glimpse the same thing,namely the outer court or “portico” of the temple……Albert Pike said this about the lower order Freemasons.
Satan….or the corrosive/destructive/chaotic/demonic part of man himself will be the tool to bring all illusions to an end.
In the book of revelation it is a destructive Jesus….(Satan/Saturn) that brings the illusion to an end,it is Saturn that puts his sickle in and reaps. (Saturn is the God with the sickle.)
Shiva ends the illusion and dances to release the souls of men through the narrow gate.
The Narrow Gate
…23And someone said to Him, “Lord, are there just a few who are being saved?” And He said to them, 24“Strive to enter through the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. 25“Once the head of the house gets up and shuts the door, and you begin to stand outside and knock on the door, saying, ‘Lord, open up to us!’ then He will answer and say to you, ‘I do not know where you are from.’
The ancients said we come into this realm through the moon and exit through Saturn….Saturn is the gatekeeper who holds the keys to escaping this material realm.
We come in through the womb,and out through the tomb.
Saturn is the hidden one…Saturn or “Old Father Time” is the God who has a scythe or sickle…….and Saturn is connected with the harvest…..see the eternal virgin blog for more.
Saturn can also be known as Satan,Set,Sut,Seth,Suty…(Sooty)…and he is also Santa!
Where do you find soot,is it not in chimneys?
(And does Santa not come down the chimney?)
Saturn is linked with soot and carbon.
We will see a lot of the customs and rituals surrounding Christmas are connected to Saturn.
Christmas is telling us about the end of a cycle….the old year ended at the winter solstice (December 22nd) and 3 days later (Jesus/Sun 3 days in his tomb) (December 25th) the new year is born as the sun starts its climb from the darkest days up to its throne at the tropic of cancer (June 21st).
Lets look at another link between Saturn and Carbon.
One of the forms of carbon is graphite……and is it a coincidence that it has a hexagonal structure?
In the bible the 666 is a “man’s number”,man is the highest of carbon lifeforms.
Saturn rules the dark part of year…the 6 months of darkness starting from September 22nd till March 21st.
And Saturn IS connected with time and space….he is the “Time Lord” remember!
Santa has a long beard because he is Father time/Satan/Saturn.
He is old father time….he is Chronos who is connected with chronology,time,clocks etc.
If the creator part of “God” is the Alpha….Saturn is the Omega…the destroying part of “God”….(Omega means the mega or big “O”….”O”mega as opposed to Omicron…which is the micro “O”….”O”micron.
Remember it’s all about ones and zeros!
Women have circles (zeros)….and men have straight lines (ones/erect penis),which when inserted into the woman’s circle (vagina)…..can bring about new life.
The creator,life giving part of this force is the Alpha….and the destructive part of the same force is the omega.
There are connections between time and omega…Chronos/Saturn/Satan is the omega.
Lets talk again about the symbols and terms that describe Saturn.
The colour that is connected with Saturn is…..Black!
The metal that is connected to Saturn is…..Lead!…as was stated above
Lead is also a heavy metal is it not?
And isn’t “heavy metal” music connected with the colour black and Satan/Saturn?
Yes…..type heavy metal music into images and you get this…..
All “Satanic” imagery…..due to the influence of Saturn/Satan/lead/black/chaos
Just as the moon affects tides on this earth….Saturn affects our psyche.
Saturn is a “force” or “concept” that is connected to law,funerals and death,heavy metal music/solemnity and revelry/end of a cycle/harvesting/killing/eats his own children….yet he also gives gifts to his good children…i.e Saint Nicholas Christmas.
But Saturn in the form of Krampus….becomes “Bad Santa” and punishes the wrongdoing children.
In fact lets look at an image of Krampus…….it would be just coincidence if he had horns and stuff connected with Saturn/Pan/Satan/Set…would it not?
Just as Aleister Crowley said….all symbols have both a “good” and “bad” side….Saturn both punishes those who don’t learn lessons…….and rewards those who do learn their lesson.
Jesus comes at midnight also….like a thief…gives good gifts to the righteous……and punishes the wrongdoers,because he is also Satan…..its just in our world of Tommy/duality that we see things as good and evil…….when it is all illusion and perception while at the same time being so real to us.
If you look at the above link…….is it another coincidence (lots aren’t there!) that Krampus brings a lump of coal (carbon/Saturn) for the bad kids?
Remember in a previous blog we spoke about the Sefer Yetzirah and the cube of space.
Saturn signified by the Hebrew letter “Tau”….(see tau-saturn link in previous blogs) holds together time and space.
He holds together the 6 sided cube…(number 6 again)…and yet he is the hidden seventh inside the cube…….I will talk more in a later blog about being at sixes and sevens and the connection to turning lead into gold.However if you have been following the blogs and grasping the concepts within…..you will already be making connections.
Everything in this realm of duality has it’s season….a beginning and an end….a sowing and a harvesting.
Right now we are living at mankind’s winter solstice as we approach the end of the age of Pisces before transforming into the new age of Aquarius!
The changing from the old sun/age/system who dies at the winter solstice and the new sun/age/system which will be born from the darkness and chaos.
“The fruit I bring forth is the Sun” said Isis.
………and isn’t Isis in the news an awful lot lately.
Isis is the female companion of Saturn (see the eternal virgin blog)…colour black…connected with death and chaos….the female is deadlier than the male!
The motto of freemasonry is “Ordo Ab Chao” “Order out of chaos”
Now “Order out of chaos” is stating the same thing as Isis when she proclaims “The fruit I bring forth is the sun!”
Or as an earlier blog says “Darkness/chaos gives birth to the light/order”
Saturn/Satan is also connected with time as said above.
Lets work out the “Tom” Riddle” now.
If you read or watched the Harry Potter series you will know that Tom Riddle becomes Lord Voldemort……the “baddie” in the series of books and films.
He plays the Satanic/Saturn Character whereas Harry Potter assumes the Christ/Sun figure.
The name “Tom” or “Thomas” means “twin” and as we will see it is connected with Saturn…and time!
Yet again it goes back to the sine wave from earlier blogs….the hourglass in the first picture at the top,and the yin/yang….in fact everything is contained in the sine wave below.
As the sun moves from spring/summer (expansion) to autumn/winter (contraction) it forms a pulse….a beat…….a rhythm.
An in….and an out!
A tick…and a tock!
Well these twins/pulses/beats are Thomas/Tammuz (Tammuz is Thomas)…Let’s see why.
Let’s start off with Tammuz the month and its celebration
Notice in the above link that Tammuz is connected with the SUMMER solstice……so we have a Thomas at one of the solstices……..the tropic of cancer at midsummer….the longest day,the highest part of the suns journey in the year.
Now what are the chances that “Saint Thomas Day” is at the WINTER solstice…and yet there it is.
Can you see what they are signifying?
The two tropics….Cancer and Capricorn….and the sun switching back and forth between the two like a beat.
The heartbeat of the year….the tick tock of “Time/Timmy”
Whether they are Tim/Tom/Tam/Tem/Tum/Dum…they all signify the pulse or beat…in and out.(The twins!)
That is why we have “Tom-Toms”….they give us the beat….Dum Dum!
(“Dumuzi” is another name for Tammuz)
We also have TAMbourines….that give us the beat
Also what about TEMpo?
They give us the beat of music …and the two Tams/Toms give us the beat or pulse of the year….the summer solstice and the winter solstice…tick and tock.
They are the Tommyknockers….he he.
They are forever switching back and forth just like the sand in the sand timer in the first picture of this blog…tick tock….or in Thomas case in the bible….”doubting”…..for he was in two minds.
As for Timothy in the bible….did he not receive two letters from the Apostle Paul?
Along with the two solstices being connected to Thomas…they are also connected with John.
And they are also connected to sex with the back and forth beat….rock and roll!
If your eyes move from the winter solstice to the summer solstice and back….your head moves up and down…as if you are nodding or saying yes…and makes a number one shape…..(the obelisk/erect penis makes a one shape…and moves up and down) and is it yet another coincidence that your penis can also be called your “JOHN THOMAS”
(If you move your eyes between the two equinoxes (horizontally) you are shaking your head or saying no (feminine/negative)…the path of the solstices form the male and equinoxes the female.)
Saturn/Satan is connected with hell and Tommy (time).
Because it is Old Father Time that gives us the relentless beat of the twins of time.
Saturn is Satan….the time lord and ruler of space……..Doctor Who is Saturn/Satan…the time lord……what does Tardis mean again,isn’t it connected with time…..and space…and isn’t the Tardis a box?
Saturn is connected with 6’s…..as is man who is the highest form of carbon species,and carbon just happens to have 6 protons,6 electrons and 6 neutrons.
Saturn is also connected with 60…or three score…….each hour contains 60 minutes…each minute contains 60 seconds.
Remember I had an earlier blog called the day the year and the great year….well the day corresponds to the six,the year to the sixty….and the great year to the 600….which gives six hundred three score and six…..666…..the number of the beast which is a mans number….and again…we have 666.
Saturn is the 6th planet from the sun and one of its moons is…just another coincidence….Pan!…..another connection to Satan/earthiness/materiality.
Whether Satan/Set/Saturn/Pan…….we are talking about the same force….or concept and its different aspects….and look at the groups below who recognize Satan/Saturn/Set.
Church of Satan
Temple of Set
Remember Saturn is also connected with death…..and that is why when you’re gone….you will be SIX feet under….in a BOX!
Saturn will knock you for six!
Anyways…….thanks for reading peoples of the planet!
Till next …ahem…..TIME!
Here is some further reading for you that you might find interesting.
Did you notice in the article above…they just cannot work out who Old Father Thames is?
Do you think you may have solved that “Thames/Tammuz/Tom Riddle?”
The “Old Man River”….that just keeps rolling along (the river of time.)
Before this blog gets underway,I have to give my gratitude to all those truth seekers and tellers who gave me a whole new way of seeing things.Here are but a few of them.
Michael Tsarion,Santos Bonacci,Lon Milo Duquette,Manly Palmer Hall,Mark Passio,Aleister Crowley,Israel Regardie,Jordan Maxwell,The Rev Robert Taylor,Albert Pike.
Thanks to all of you for helping me out on my path,and to the many others I haven’t named.
If any of these blogs I write interest you,please research the works of the people above,as my blogs contain the influences of all of them.
As usual…before this blog gets going,if you have been grasping the occult teachings,you will also understand this quote.
When thou hast made the quadrangle round, Then is all the secret found – George Ripley (Alchemist, 1490)
Once you understand that there is a “fourness” to nature……the quadrangle,and use that “fourness” in your studies,nature will start to give up her secrets to you.
Isis will “unveil” herself……….”the word “apocalypse” means to “unveil”
As does “revelation”…..to reveal………….We can see long lived institutions and patterns of life starting to dissolve as the new form around them.
This is the unveiling of Isis or the Cube of Saturn opening to form the cross
…”the Kabalists hold that these four principles penetrate and create everything. Therefore, when the man finds these four principles in things and phenomena of quite different categories (where before he had not seen similarity), he begins to see analogy between these phenomena. And, gradually, he becomes convinced that the whole world is built according to one and the same law, on one and the same plan. The richness and growth of his intellect consists in the widening of his faculty for finding analogies. Therefore the study of the law of the four letters, or the name of Jehovah presents a powerful means for widening consciousness” – P. D. Ouspensky
As stated above…the four letters,the tetragrammaton is a key,the 4 living creatures of the bible are a key,which helps start to fill the picture in for you,or again as Ouspensky says above helps “widen your consciousness.”
Think of it this way,if you want to start a jigsaw puzzle,it usually helps to find the four corners before the picture slowly forms for you.
It is the same with this puzzle.
And you will see this “fourness” throughout the bible,and also other holy books,also through myths and fairy stories and legends.
Another few examples.
Back to this blog now….
“The word is mightier than the sword”
“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”
Jordan Maxwell says in one of his presentations we really have to start to understand words….why?
Hopefully this blog gives a tiny glimpse of how words and terms affect us….without us noticing most of the time…so let’s get started!
Rites and Spells
When you think of “rites” and “spells”…you may associate those words with witchcraft,the occult…or magic.
For instance….casting spells…magic spells…satanic rites…..words not uttered often in polite society…..or are they?
Well,children do this every day at school….they learn to (w)rite……and spell!
What about ancient “grimoires?”
A “grimoire” is a magic book………..the word “grimoire” comes from the word “grammar.”
Therefore…….writing……spelling and grammar are the tools of the magician!
Words are tools of occultists and magicians.
According to the author Alan Moore,”magic” is ….”a science of language.”
Try to watch the whole video if you can.
(Alan Moore is the author of “V for Vendetta”…..”Watchmen” and “From Hell”)
Magic is among other things,the ability to sculpt words and symbols to “achieve changes in consciousness”
Aleister Crowley in defining “magick” said this:-
“It is the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with will.”
Those with a strong “will” can make those with weaker wills bend to their every word.
The bible talks about how precious words and oaths are….how important your word is.
“I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak”
Again…please watch what Alan Moore says on the above video……understand what he means when he says how carefully a magician has to choose his words.
Every word you utter is like a spell…….it can cause devastation in another persons life….or it can be a great blessing to them.
When I was a Jehovah’s Witness….I was literally “spellbound.”
the word “spellbound” means…….
“To hold the complete attention of (someone) as though by magic”
I allowed the words and symbols of others to capture my mind……I gave my mind over to others.
I allowed a group of men in Brooklyn,New York (who I had never met) to guide my mind,and I now find that fascinating,because binding with magic(a modern meaning of “magic” is influence/mind manipulation) doesn’t stop at the door of the watchtower society…it is everywhere!
When I started allowing myself to question things it was like scales falling from my eyes….I literally had an awakening….it was as if I awoke from a dream.
And that awakening is a terrifying experience….watch this video that is helping JW’s get through that roller coaster ride.
The video tries to help JW’s come to terms with unravelling the concepts that have been implanted in their minds……to break the thoughtforms that have bound their minds.
THIS IS THE REAL MEANING OF MAGIC!
In the biblical account of the birth of jesus…the “wise men” who came to bestow gifts on the newborn were actually called “Magi.”
Now “magi” is a word that should be familiar to you….the word “magic” contains “magi.”
The “wise men” of the bible were magicians and astrologers!
The word “imagine” also contains magi….imagination
The “real” magicians of this world are those who wield words and symbols as weapons on the minds,and particularly the “emotions” of the unwary.
Think of the emotional scene when a televangelist says a few words well…gets the whole audience under his spell….and donations com a-pouring in!
Again…this folks….is magic!……..he put a “spell” into their minds…or an image (again “magi” is there in “image”).
The image I had in my mind when I was a Jehovah’s witness was that those men in Brooklyn somehow had direct contact ( never explained by what method) with God and were directing us as “Gods only true organization” into everlasting life on earth.
(I know I was an eejit) but there are 7 million Jehovah’s witnesses with that picture/image in their mind right now!
They give away their valuable time and money to a pipe dream spun by their manipulators!
For example, this is what happens when JW’s (Jehovah’s Witnesses) build a new Kingdom Hall.
The congregation apply to the society for a loan,which they obviously have to pay back.
Then they and all the other local congregations gather to help build the Kingdom hall (free labour).
The hall is usually built over a weekend.
So the JW’s pay for their own hall and build it themselves.
Now here’s the kicker……while the hall is built and paid for by the local JW’s……the property is signed over to the organization,who have just gained themselves some new valuable property and they haven’t lifted a finger.
And their adherents think they are doing all of this for God!
They truly are “captives of a concept.”
And that is only Jehovah’s Witnesses…..think of all the other thousands of religions worldwide where people are giving their time and money thinking they are serving their own version of “God.”
Mormons believe that a man called Joseph Smith spoke to an angel called Moroni who directed him to a buried book of golden plates.
And Mormons give a lot of their hard earned money to their religion believing that THEY are the right religion.
However not one of those religions are true…they are both false.
Members of each religion can see how absurd the others beliefs are…..YET…they have a “blind spot” when it comes to examining their own faith.
None of the religions out there have the way to “God”…….there are over 30,000 different christian denominations alone and each one will differ from all the others in some way or other.
The answer does not lie outside of you……You need to awaken the higher self……the “God” within……..the only temple that “God” resides in is your own body.
You need to resurrect the Christ within you.
“Jesus said, “If those who lead you say to you, ‘See, the kingdom is in the sky,’ then the birds of the sky will precede you. If they say to you, ‘It is in the sea,’ then the fish will precede you. Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living father. But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty.””
The Gospel of Thomas verse 3.
1 Corinthians 3:16
“Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you?”
People worldwide right now are following blind leaders.
And that concept holds them captive to the will of those they handed their own will and mind over to.
They truly are “captives of a concept”….”prisoners of a thought form.”
They have given their “birthright” their own “sovereignty” away to those ones.
Another example…Tom Cruise/John Travolta/Kirstie Alley think Scientology is the right religion and that David Miscavige has the right to lord it over them….and the minds of others.
Even when they get to one of their levels and they are told about Xenu,they still remain committed to the group….who is Xenu you ask?…..Please read for yourself in the link below.
Think also of images that have been put into the minds of the population of a country
“Mom and apple pie”
“Stiff upper lip”
“Keep calm and carry on”
“America is the great satan”
These things divide us all…….
People will kill one another over a bit of cloth (the flag)…..or a different coloured football shirt……all because of their manipulated thoughts stirring their “watery” emotions.
Magic is also said to be:-
“trickery and slight-of-hand to beguile an audience”
“God” to us is really our own inner voice and compass…….and it should remain ever like that.
There should never be an intermediary/interloper between us and “God.”
However…… there are magicians who can implant images into your mind that override your own inner compass and shut down the inner voice.
They then place their image into your mind…and when you are subject to the will of another….you are in trouble…you are a slave Neo!
It is a form of hypnotism….mesmerism.
This is why the bible says
“You shall have no other gods before Me.” 4“You shall not make for yourself an image, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth.”
All of the things in this world that man fights over and is divided by…are illusions.
Do not get me wrong……those illusions can be very destructive to us.
When I stopped believing the illusion of Jehovah’s Witnesses it still caused havoc in my life…not because of the illusion itself…..but by the still clinging adherents to that illusion.
And we are surrounded by people who believe illusions…they can and will cause you harm if you dare to think outside the box.
Nazism was an illusion and it duped a whole nation of really intelligent people…..
Marshall Applewhite created an illusion that caused people to willingly kill themselves for it…..and even more….with a big smile on their face while doing it…they were so happy to die for that picture in their mind.
Watch this video filmed just before they died,and note how happy they all are at their impending death!
And again before you think those were just a few dupes…..
I ask you to think of the German population under Hitler…sure there were those who had their reservations…..but intelligent people……engineers/scientists/lawyers were all swept along with that tidal wave of social pressure.
That is the problem when we look outside rather than dig within our own selves
Outside us are all illusions…..hooks that want to grab you….to take your mind..to bind us with contracts and oaths.
Saturn/Satan as the restricter/limiter is the one who binds and deceives those who wish to be deceived…..Saturn will put you in a box.
There are master manipulators who can control you without you ever realizing it.
And we also now have “political correctness”…where people are kept in a mode of thought and speech dictated by others,where we start to police ourselves.
The truth is…as humans we are easily manipulated…easily programmed…….and we adapt to even the most horrendous conditions and think them normal.
Aldous Huxley said this in his speech at Berkeley University called “the ultimate revolution”
It was given in 1962……….over 50 years ago.
“It seems to me that the nature of the ultimate revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this: That we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably will always exist to get people to love their servitude.”
Love their servitude?……yes….you are a slave neo!
In 1st Samuel chapter eight verse five….the elders of Israel approach Samuel.
5 They said to him, “You are old, and your sons do not follow your ways; now appoint a king to lead us, such as all the other nations have.”
In effect they were saying to Samuel that they wanted to give up their birthright….their divine right to rule their own selves….they wanted to be ruled like children
what did Samuel say to them?
11 He said, “This is what the king who will reign over you will claim as his rights: He will take your sons and make them serve with his chariots and horses, and they will run in front of his chariots. 12 Some he will assign to be commanders of thousands and commanders of fifties, and others to plow his ground and reap his harvest, and still others to make weapons of war and equipment for his chariots. 13 He will take your daughters to be perfumers and cooks and bakers. 14 He will take the best of your fields and vineyards and olive groves and give them to his attendants. 15 He will take a tenth of your grain and of your vintage and give it to his officials and attendants. 16 Your male and female servants and the best of your cattle[c] and donkeys he will take for his own use. 17 He will take a tenth of your flocks, and you yourselves will become his slaves. 18 When that day comes, you will cry out for relief from the king you have chosen, but the Lord will not answer you in that day.”
In other words it is what we see around about us today……our sons fight for their rulers when the rulers decide they will be needed.
They will take the best of your produce and give it to the ones who prop up their rule.
Verse 18 is of particular interest….when you cry out for relief from the chains you have bound YOURSELF with….god will not listen.
Notice we build our own prisons and chain ourselves…….this is one of the meanings of the devil tarot card….again notice that the chains that hold the slaves of the devil are loose around the slaves neck……..it only takes a change of mind to unshackle yourself!
This is also again the allegory of dealing with the devil…..if you willingly contract with him…you’d better be damned sure you know what you are signing up for…..because he sure does….and he will hold you to every letter of that contract.
It is also the allegory of the vampire…….you have to invite him over your threshold..he cannot come in uninvited……but once you do succumb and invite him over.
………he will bleed you dry!
We only get what we as a people deserve when we look to people outside ourselves to run our lives for us….whether it be religion or government….we need to grow up….stand on our own two feet.
We need to awaken ourselves!
In the book of Jeremiah we see that there will be ones who will awaken and take back their own sovereignty
“But this is the covenant which I will make with the house of Israel after those days,” declares the LORD, “I will put My law within them and on their heart I will write it; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people”
2 Corinthians 3:3
“You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”
Notice that the laws will be in their heart and not on outside tablets of stone….it is telling us about gaining back our own birthright or sovereignty.
And not to be like Esau who sold his birthright for a bowl of stew.
And Jacob said, “First swear to me”; so he swore to him, and sold his birthright to Jacob. 34.Then Jacob gave Esau bread and lentil stew; and he ate and drank, and rose and went on his way. Thus Esau despised his birthright.
Notice he willingly gave his sovereignty away?
In the major stories of the bible…there is one theme “set my people free”
In the story of Moses……he approaches the ruler of his world and says…”set my people free.”
Jesus approached the pharisees and saducees and talked about how their laws were binding the people and weighing them down…again in effect saying “set my people free.”
For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.
However many did get back their own freedoms by following Jesus…or “the truth.”
They came back to life….they came out of their “graves.”
This is the meaning of the bible verse at Matthew 27:52
“And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split. 52The tombs were opened, and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; 53and coming out of the tombs after His resurrection they entered the holy city and appeared to many”
And again we are starting to see our freedoms diminish….it will take another cry of “set my people free” to loosen the shackles we have imposed on our own selves by giving our sovereignty over to others.
Here are some interesting experiments to show how easy we can be manipulated.
And words are used to control us….the pen truly is mightier than the sword.
In the esoteric and occult disciplines….words and wordplay are very important.
If you have read or watched the “Da Vinci code” you will have noticed the wordplay and codes used throughout the book.
One example is “San Greal”…..”Holy Grail” becoming “Sang real”….”Royal blood” all with moving a letter….although they mean the same thing…….the vagina…..the life bringing cup with the wine/blood in it.
In the Harry Potter books and films we can see wordplay constantly…..here’s an example.
There are four houses that the pupils can belong to……(there’s the four again)
Gryffindor,Slytherin,Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.
Harry Potter represents the light and truth….so we should expect to see some sun symbolism surrounding him….and we do!
Harry Potter belongs to Gryffindor.
Here is the crest of Gryffindor….and it just happens to be a lion,and you will know from previous blogs on here…the lion is a symbol of the Sun with its golden mane.
The sun is likened to a golden lion and Harry Potter represents the light and sun.
But what about his enemy Draco Malfoy…..he belongs to the house called “Slytherin” and we can see the word “slithering” contained in it,connecting it to a serpent…..which represents the darkness/satan/saturn…..however we can also see the words “sly therein” also contained in the name.
And what about the name Harry Potter?……..in Sanskrit the name “Hari” is connected to the sun,day,gold and yellow……..
And the Egyptian god Ptah (pronounced pitah) is the potter or creator…who fashions things on his potters wheel…..(notice the wheel…see the blogs on “wheels within wheels”)
Whereas Draco Malfoy’s name contains the enemy of light….”Draco” means “dragon.”
“Mal” means “bad”
“Foy” can mean “way” or “journey”………think foyer.
So the names all mean something.
All of the occult orders pay real close attention to words and names.
Onomatology is the science of names
“It is certain that onomatology, or the science of names, forms a very interesting part of the investigations of the higher Masonry” (Encyclopedia of Freemasonry page 481)
A lot of films containing occult themes will have this type of wordplay and punning all through them.
What about the film “Rosemary’s Baby?”
When Rosemary played by Mia Farrow finds out that her neighbour “Roman Castavets” is really an anagram of “Steven Marcato”….the satanist.
You will see it a lot in films.
Jordan Maxwell talks about occult words and terms in the video “The occult world of commerce”
In the video he tells us that the words and terms surrounding money are also connected with water!
He says that “money runs through your fingers like water”
You have a “cashFLOW.”
If you have a business and it isn’t going well…you might need “bailed out”
You can have your assets “frozen”
You can put your money in a “slush” fund.
Or if the worst comes to the worst …your business goes into “liquidation”
Banks have “current” accounts.
Talking about banks…..a river has a “bank” at each side to direct the flow of the “current-cy” as do banks in the high street.
You put a “float” in the cash register.
You “drown” in debt.
You try to keep your “head above water”…and remain “buoyant.”
You can get a “bridging” loan….hopefully not from a loan “shark”
If you buy something they will “ship” it out to you (even though it usually arrives in a van!)
You might get a “sponger” after your money
“Life saving” is connected to money and water.
You may save for a “rainy” day.
Money has a “watermark” on it.
You may “pool” your money together.
Or “splash” the cash or “splash out” on a new car.
And I bet you can think of some words connecting “money” and “water” yourself…there are loads.
Yes words are mighty things…..for further reading you may want to study for yourself the word “egregore” and how an “egregore” can affect us.
These are the things nefarious occult orders use to control and manipulate the unwary.
For further reading…also check out Edward Bernays
Knowledge is power!
Thanks for reading!
And merry Christmas to everyone on the planet!
This blog will be talking about an ancient,and widespread ritual which was observed in many lands throughout history and whose theme still pervades literature and cinema up to this day,and may be behind the story of the killing of Jesus, “King of the Jews.”
However,before the blog gets underway,I said in an earlier blog that there was a relationship between the “number 26” and “Jehovah” in occult literature and teachings.
In what way?….well in a few ways,so let’s have a look at some.
We’ll start off by using the “Hebrew letters” and “Gematria”
(Gematria is linked with the word “Geometry”)
Then we’ll be using the tree of life in Kabbalah.
After that using the Zodiac wheel itself.
Then “English” Gematria.
And lastly from the cube of space in the Sefer Yetzirah.
Let’s start with the Hebrew letters that make up the Tetragrammaton!
Yod,Heh,Vav,Heh…..The Four Letters…..The name of “God.”
Notice below that each of the Hebrew letters has a numerical value.
You will notice that the letter “Yod” is the tenth letter with a value of 10
Then the letter “Heh” has the value of 5
The letter “Vav” has a value of 6
And the final “Heh” has a value of 5
Next let’s look at the “tree of life” in Kabbalah.
The left pillar (female) called the pillar of severity.
And the middle pillar,called the pillar of balance or equilibrium.
(see more about the middle pillar in previous blogs)
Each of the pillars represents among many things the hemispheres of the brain (right/left) and the balance/middle pillar (corpus callosum )
It can also mean the right hand side of the body,left hand side of the body,and the spine (middle pillar).
In an atom you have a proton(male),electron(female) and neutron (middle pillar/androgynous/balance/equilibrium)
Another representation of the three pillars are the two tropics,Tropic of Cancer,Tropic of Capricorn and the middle pillar represents the Equator.
Also the three pillars of freemasonry.
Now notice each of the sephiroth (spheres) on the kabbalah tree of life has a number from 1 to 10.
God represents the balance of the two forces (male and female) which is represented by the middle pillar.
Now with that said,count up the numbers on the spheres of the middle pillar.
Kether,Tiphareth,Yesod and Malkuth.
1+6+9+10 and it also adds up to the number 26!
Now we go back to the vision of the four living creatures of the Zodiac as seen by both Ezekiel and John the Revelator.
The four living creatures represent the four fixed signs of the zodiac,(and YHVH….respectively Fire,Water,Air,Earth)Yod,Heh,Vav,Heh.
(A quick recap of the four fixed signs…..The Lion represents Leo (Fire),The Eagle represents Scorpio (Water),The Man represents Aquarius (Air) and The Bull represents Taurus (Earth))
The fixed signs are the middle signs of each season and equate to the middle pillar of the tree of life.What I mean by that is that Leo is the middle of summer,Taurus middle of spring,Aquarius the middle of winter,and Scorpio middle of autumn.
Now that said,of the twelve houses of the Zodiac…
See the chart below,locate the four living creatures,and note what number of “house” they rule.
The second house is ruled by Taurus (one of the living creatures)
The fifth house is ruled by Leo
The eighth house is ruled by Scorpio
and the eleventh house is ruled by Aquarius.
These are the four living creatures!
Now add up the four “house numbers”
2+5+8+11 and you get the number 26 yet again!
Then there is the word “God” in “English Gematria” (English has 26 letters unlike Hebrew which has 22)
The letter “G” is the 7th letter of the alphabet.
The letter”O” is the 15th letter of the alphabet.
And the letter “D” is the 4th letter of the alphabet.
And finally what about the cube of space from the Sepher Yetzirah,featured in an earlier blog.
Here it is again below.
Now the cube has 6 sides,8 points and 12 lines…and wouldn’t you know
And going slightly off topic but again it might be relevant,notice what the Sepher Yetzirah says about the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet equating to the 10 fingers of the hand,and in between we have our tongue where we get the word “lingual” ( the connection to “lingam”)
And between our 10 toes we have the penis (lingam)
and 10+1+10+1=22 (the 22 creative letters of the Hebrew alphabet)
Also notice the letter yod is the tenth letter (number 10) which contains a 1 and 0…or Adam and Eve (Odd and Even),and as an earlier blog said..it’s all about ones and zeros folks!
Yod is the creative letter of Hebrew,as Lon Milo Duquette says,blow on the letter “Yod” and it will reveal all the other letters.(“Yod” looks like a candle flame!)
Small yet powerful,just like “Yoda” in Star Wars!
Now to the blog about the divine victim.
But one of them, Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all. 50Nor do you understand that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.” 51He did not say this of his own accord, but being high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the nation.
According to Margaret Alice Murray in her book “The God of the witches”:-
In the primitive Western cults of Europe,the leader was a “Sacred King”,sharing both kingly and priestly duties,and there is strong evidence that the King or “God” of the cult would sacrifice his life for the group in the event that the crops failed or some other tragedy fell upon the group.He would also be killed when he started showing any signs of weakness,such as greying hair,loss of teeth,waning sex drive,illness.
The “God” died by one of three methods….Fire,Shedding of blood (so that the blood should fall on the ground) and by Asphyxiation.
You can see by the wikipedia page below this seems to have been a widespread belief and practice,even outside Europe.
The “one” took on the sins of the nation.
They became the scapegoat for the Nation.
The bible talks about scapegoats and the ritual involved.
“Aaron shall cast lots for the two goats, one lot for the LORD and the other lot for the scapegoat. “Then Aaron shall offer the goat on which the lot for the LORD fell, and make it a sin offering. “But the goat on which the lot for the scapegoat fell shall be presented alive before the LORD, to make atonement upon it, to send it into the wilderness as the scapegoat.”
Remnants of this ritual still persist to this day in Ireland at the “Puck Fair”
Notice the book above says it could be the King himself,it could be an animal,or a human substitute for the King,which would give the King an extended reign.
In the original 1973 film “The Wicker Man” (Also a play on words “Wicca” Man) we are shown this “divine victim” ritual or practice,in that when there is a poor harvest one of the young virgin girls of the island is to be sacrificed,although there is a plot twist in the film!
The King could be showing signs of losing his power and be killed by one of the younger men in the group who then takes his place as the next “Divine King” or “Rex Nemorensis” “King of the Wood” or “Grove”
This motif is the subject of the film “Apocalypse Now” where at the end of the film,the “King” (Colonel Kurtz) is killed by the U.S army captain Benjamin Willard and the villagers all bow down to Willard. (the new Rex Nemorensis)
Another clue as to this killing of the king ritual being the theme of the movie is Colonel Kurtz’s reading material you see lying around.
Namely “The Golden Bough” and “From Ritual to Romance” and these two books deal with the sacrifice of the King.
Read the trivia in the above wiki page about the son killing the father/king.
(And the song “The End” by the doors has lyrics pertaining to the Oedipus Complex in the movie Apocalypse Now)
Another linked theme is the land being a barren wasteland until the old impotent King dies and the new virile King brings in a new time of prosperity.
You will also notice in the wikipedia page “Golden Bough subject matter”about Kings and Priests having to fulfill their very serious vows.
These vows included death after reigning a period of time,or death if crops failed.
You will notice this theme most clearly in the film “Eye of the Devil” again starring David Niven,Deborah Kerr and Sharon Tate.
David Niven is called back to his vineyard after the crop fails at his vineyard and a blood sacrifice (Niven) is required to bring back the vineyard to it’s former glory.
Notice Sharon Tate plays a girl named “Odile” (Odile is the black swan in Swan Lake)
Also did you know that Swan Lake may have been based on Ludwig II,as Tchaikovsky took great interest in the life story of Ludwig.
And also have a read at the mysterious events surrounding Ludwig’s death and his connection to swans…he was called the “Swan King” and lived in a castle at “Schwansee” (Swan Lake).
In his book “The Golden Bough” James Frazer also links this dying God,who dies to take away the barren wasteland and restore the land to it’s former glory as applying to the figures of Osiris,Tammuz,Attis,Adonis,Dionysus and Jesus.
The death and departure of the Gods where a God (or pantheon of Gods) dies,is killed or destroyed.
Just as the bible says there is a time to live and a time to die…everything has it’s tidal rhythm.
And just as summer has to give way to the dark months,everything must come to it’s end.
In the Book of Revelation it is telling us about a great cycle coming to an end,it is called an “Age” and lasts approximately two thousand years.
That is why Revelation shows us horsemen with scales (Libra,first month of autumn,red horsemen with swords,Scorpio and white horse with bowman,Sagittarius)
At some point the light will disappear and the dark forces will reign,however like summer gives way to the dark days,these dark days will have to give way to the light yet again…it is a cycle and the bible gives us the assurance that the light will return by telling us the lamb will be on the heavenly mount again…the lamb is Aries,the month of the spring equinox,the return of the lamb of God who takes away the darkness/sin (“sin” in Spanish means without) of the earth,the barren wasteland that winter leaves behind and brings back growth/warmth/fecundity and light.
We are at the end of this light part of the cycle right now and darkness will have it’s day,but just like the symbol of the owl in the previous blog,the darkness will bring us more wisdom and teach humanity’s survivors a harsh (and ultimately good) lesson and will eventually usher in a whole new way of thinking and behaving.
We can see the old wineskins leaking right now,people are leaving religion in droves,it is outdated and cannot hold the different influences of this new “age/aeon.”
James Frazer says in the Golden Bough that there is a three phase action that goes on…
First….Magic which gives way to Religion which in turn gives way to Science and we see that happening right now.
The Old Gods of this age are about to give way to the new.
And by “Gods” I mean our inner psyches/modes of thought that are being projected out from us all.
If you break the word “mocking” down you get “mock king” and again this brings us back to the substitute stand in for the death of the King.
With this in mind pay attention to John 11:50 mentioned in the book above.
“Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all. 50Nor do you understand that it is better for you that one man should die for the people, not that the whole nation should perish.””
Caiaphas (being high priest) would have understood this ritual of the “mock king”, “divine victim” and “scapegoat” “sacrificial lamb” very well.
And didn’t they mock Jesus?
“Now the men who were holding Jesus in custody were mocking Him and beating Him”
“They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him. And after twisting together a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand; and they knelt down before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”
Is this what the bible is telling us about,this sacrificing a Divine Victim to bring about prosperity to the barren wasteland,this well known ritual that has echoed all throughout history?
The death of the “Christ” brought about new growth and a new mode of thought.
Margaret Murray in her book “The God of the Witches” gives four examples of historical characters she claims may have been involved in this ancient ritual.
These four are:-
Thomas Becket (who she says was a stand in for Henry the 2nd)
Rufus (William 2nd,son of William the Conqueror).
Joan of Arc.
Gilles de Rais.
Here are some interesting things she says about the Thomas Becket killing.
In the film “Eyes wide shut” Tom Cruise’s character is in deep trouble after seeing too much at a ritual until a woman stands in for him,becomes his scapegoat and is found dead soon after.
And I’m sure you will find lots of interesting things in the wikipedia page below about the Fisher King and the links to this theme also.
In Ancient Babylon,the killing of the King was acted out at “Zagmuk” (beginning of the year)
And the festival of “Sacaea”
All these festivals are connected to the sun and the zodiac.
Every year at the winter solstice,the “old” Sun (of the previous year) dies to give way to the “newborn” sun who starts his cycle of the next year.
“The King is dead (old sun),long live the king (new sun)!”
The old sun is at it’s weakest state at the winter solstice and is replaced by the new invigorated sun which starts his cycle.
This is the one common bond between all of the myths of the dying and resurrecting Gods such as Attis,Dionysius,Bacchus….Jesus!
The Jewish festival of “Purim” has a “substitute” killed in place of the intended victim(s).
Haman tried to persuade Ahasuerus the King to order the killing of Mordecai and all the Jews in Persia.However the plot is foiled by Queen Esther resulting in Haman and his sons being killed in place of the intended ones.
As a side note,in astrology the two benefics are Jupiter and Venus.
Marduk is associated with Jupiter and Esther with Venus/Astarte….Ishtar.
The title of the “Golden Bough” comes from the Aeneid when Aeneas and the Cumaean Sibyl present the plucked Golden Bough to the gatekeeper of Hades in order to gain admission.
(Interestingly the Aeneid is written in 12 parts (zodiac) and is split into two (books 1-6) and (7-12).
The 6 months of light and darkness!
In the book he tells of Lake Nemi (which Turner also painted) near Rome,where there is a sacred grove dedicated to Diana Nemorensis. (Diana of the Wood)
Diana is the Goddess of the moon and hunting.
Frazer tells us in this grove there grew a certain tree of which no branch may be broken.
And there was also a priesthood with strange customs.
The only one who could break off a branch would be a runaway slave who was then entitled to fight the reigning priest in battle,and if he slew him reigned in his stead and became the new “King of the Wood.”
Just as Martin Sheens character became in the film “Apocalypse Now” after slaying Marlon Brando’s character as stated above.
Frazer said the ancients called this branch “the golden bough” talked about in the “Aeneid” (a poem written by Virgil),in which Aeneas with the help of Deiphobe (the Cumaean Sibyl) plucked a golden bough to give to Proserpina in order to gain access to the underworld for Aeneas to see his father.
So the Golden Bough was linked to death and the underworld.
This strange rule of succession by the sword was,according to Frazer still observed at the time of Caligula who had a priest of Nemi killed who he deemed to have reigned too long,also a Greek traveller talked about this ritual happening in the time of the Antonines.
Frazer also tells of various tribes and peoples who killed their king when the king’s strength failed,and it is very widespread throughout the earth.
The kings of fire and water in Cambodia…….
The Chitome of Congo
The Ethiopian kings of Meroe
The Shilluk people
And here is an extract from “The Golden Bough” where Frazer talks about the “Matiamvo.”
“The Matiamvo is a great king or emperor in the interior of Angola. One of the inferior kings of the country, by name Challa, gave to a Portuguese expedition the following account of the manner in which the Matiamvo comes by his end. “It has been customary,” he said, “for our Matiamvos to die either in war or by a violent death, and the present Matiamvo must meet this last fate, as, in consequence of his great exactions, he has lived long enough. When we come to this understanding, and decide that he should be killed, we invite him to make war with our enemies, on which occasion we all accompany him and his family to the war, when we lose some of our people. If he escapes unhurt, we return to the war again and fight for three or four days. We then suddenly abandon him and his family to their fate, leaving him in the enemy’s hands. Seeing himself thus deserted, he causes his throne to be erected, and, sitting down, calls his family around him. He then orders his mother to approach; she kneels at his feet; he first cuts off her head, then decapitates his sons in succession, next his wives and relatives, and, last of all, his most beloved wife, called Anacullo. This slaughter being accomplished, the Matiamvo, dressed in all his pomp, awaits his own death, which immediately follows, by an officer sent by the powerful neighbouring chiefs, Caniquinha and Canica. This officer first cuts off his legs and arms at the joints, and lastly he cuts off his head; after which the head of the officer is struck off. All the potentates retire from the encampment, in order not to witness his death. It is my duty to remain and witness his death, and to mark the place where the head and arms have been deposited by the two great chiefs, the enemies of the Matiamvo.
There are many,many more examples in his amazing book.
He also talk about Kings who only reign for a fixed term before being killed and replaced.
Killing of the Kings son.
There are many other movies containing this theme,like the Lion King,The man who would be King and I’m sure you will know a good few yourself.
Lon Milo Duquette says in one of his interviews that the consciousness of the ancients was to the extent that they thought the sun died every day and rose again the next morning,and it also died every year at the winter solstice.
However we now know that the sun doesn’t die,it just disappears for part of its daily and yearly cycle.
Well Mr. Duquette says our consciousness is now raised to the point where we realize….just as the sun does not “die”,neither do we,he says when we die we are moving to a different part of our cycle which is eternal.
He says we are never “switched off”,we are always “on”.
1st Corinthians 15:26
“For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. 26The last enemy that will be abolished is death.”
Well I hope this blog sets you on another path of learning yourself,as no vicarious religious institution can save you.
You are both pupil and teacher.
Nosce te ipsum!
Some further reading in the wiki page below
Thanks for reading!
O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
Alone and palely loitering?
The sedge has withered from the lake,
And no birds sing.
O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
So haggard and so woe-begone?
The squirrel’s granary is full,
And the harvest’s done.
I see a lily on thy brow,
With anguish moist and fever-dew,
And on thy cheeks a fading rose
Fast withereth too.
I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful—a faery’s child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.
I made a garland for her head,
And bracelets too, and fragrant Zone;
She looked at me as she did love,
And made sweet moan
I set her on my pacing steed,
And nothing else saw all day long,
For sidelong would she bend, and sing
A faery’s song.
She found me roots of relish sweet,
And honey wild, and manna-dew,
And sure in language strange she said—
‘I love thee true’.
She took me to her Elfin grot,
And there she wept and sighed full sore,
And there I shut her wild wild eyes
With kisses four.
And there she lullèd me asleep,
And there I dreamed—Ah! woe betide!—
The latest dream I ever dreamt
On the cold hill side.
I saw pale kings and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci
Hath thee in thrall!’
I saw their starved lips in the gloam,
With horrid warning gapèd wide,
And I awoke and found me here,
On the cold hill’s side.
And this is why I sojourn here,
Alone and palely loitering,
Though the sedge is withered from the lake,
And no birds sing.
Who…or rather “what” is Keats talking about in this poem?
Again this picture of the sine wave should clue us in to what the poem is about.
Aries is ruled by the planet Mars!
Mars is the warrior,the God of war(think of martial law and martial arts…they come from Mars),he is the knight-at-arms in Keats’s poem above,Mars kicks off the male/life/light/growth part of the yearly cycle in March 21st….(March is named after Mars)….this is the upper arch in the graph above.
Remember the male part of the year is Spring and Summer,the male represents the light…again…think of the Sun…if you have a male child he is your son…or Sun.
The light is needed for things to grow….and spring/summer is the part of the year when the earth grows things.
This is known in freemasonry as the royal arch.
The 6 months of light.
However,autumn and winter are the female,dark part of the year.
The lower arch of the sine wave (notice there is no colour in the bottom part of the sine wave?) starts in the sign of Libra on September 22nd/23rd…..and that is the part of the sine wave/cycle the poem is dealing with.
The male part of the day is morning and afternoon….light/active.
Evening and nighttime is the dark/passive part of the day’s cycle…the female.
Being awake and active is your “male” part of your daily life cycle.
Being asleep and dreaming is the female part of your daily life cycle….the female passive.
I wrote before that “vertical” is the male and “horizontal” the female a blog or two ago.
Think of the vertical parts of the four seasons…they are called the “SOLstices”….and again “Sol” is the sun…..the male.
The equinoxes are the female,”Equi-NOX” means equal nights,and again it links us with the female/horizontal part of the year……nox/night being the equivalent of winter/female/dark….the feminine principle/the dark in the yin/yang….again two males and two females.
Freemasons call the two solstices the “two St. Johns” or “Holy Saints John”
Now with the understanding that we are dealing with the autumn equinox and the meeting of the two forces at this special time of the year (male and female)….let’s have a look at the poem again.
Keats is talking about the end of the spring/summer/male/growth part of the season.
Mars…and the Sun’s time is almost extinguished at the sign of Libra……in fact there are only two times every year where the male and female parts of the year meet or join together.
The Spring Equinox,which we have seen in the “Aries and the lamb of god” blog.
And the other is the Autumnal equinox,and this is what we are looking at in Keats’s poem and this blog.
The two equinoxes when the Sun and Saturn “meet.”
Important info below,for understanding these concepts.
Saturn exalts in Libra,and the Sun falls,whereas it’s the opposite in Aries.
Mars is in his detriment in the sign of Libra also…the warrior has come to his end at the hand of the maiden Venus.
Scroll down in the above link to see Mars is in detriment in Libra.
Notice Venus and Saturn in Libra both “bring down” the Sun and Mars. (Saturn is Satan and Venus is Eve in the bible drama of “the fall of MAN” (Sun/Mars).
Saturn and the Sun are opposites as are Mars and Venus.
The darkness has returned to the earth…the “dark maiden” of Solomon’s song is back on the scene.
The dark part of the yin/yang………yin!
She is beautiful….and yet she is deadly……without mercy.
And aren’t both Autumn and Winter deadly….without mercy…and yet beautiful also?
The female of the species is deadlier than the male.
The female equates to Isis…whose veil mortals can never uncover.
She is the occult/left handed/sinister maiden.
She is the black widow….black again because Saturn starts his rule…he exalts in Libra to start his rule over the dark part of the year.
Notice in the wiki page above Isis is also called “Aset” or “Iset”…….which equates also to “Set”…..the dark god who is the enemy of Horus….and also sunset….just as the sun goes into the underworld and darkness arrives on the earth.
Saturn’s colour is black…..as is Isis’s colour (along with green)….the terrorist group ISIS have black flags do they not,and the colour of flags of Islam are green..are they not?
Isis’s colour is black because of Saturn and the soil/night/winter/darkness….and death!…the female part of the cycle.
But on another level….white,Isis name connects with Ice.(all the colours of light make white light…all the colours of matter..e.g paint when mixed make black)
Notice the poem says….
“O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
Alone and palely loitering?
The sedge has withered from the lake,
And no birds sing.”
He is talking about the end of the growth cycle on the earth!
“O what can ail thee, knight-at-arms,
So haggard and so woe-begone?
The squirrel’s granary is full,
And the harvest’s done.”
The haggard light has almost perished from the earth….the harvest is over…the squirrel has gathered the food to get it through the dark part of the yearly cycle.
The harvest is over….no more growth.
“I met a lady in the meads,
Full beautiful—a faery’s child,
Her hair was long, her foot was light,
And her eyes were wild.”
The knight or male “force” meets a lady in the meadow….this is the coming together of the male and female part of the year…the meeting of the two at the autumn equinox….the male part of the year is about to hand over the reign to the female/beautiful…yet dark/cruel/deadly part of the year.
“I made a garland for her head,
And bracelets too, and fragrant Zone;
She looked at me as she did love,
And made sweet moan
I set her on my pacing steed,
And nothing else saw all day long,
For sidelong would she bend, and sing
A faery’s song.”
Notice that they meet and interact?
Again this is the “Hieros Gamos.”
Also if you look at the picture above near the bottom of the wiki page mentioned…you will see the hieros gamos pic above is called “fermentatio“…..and isn’t it this part of the year that the grapes are picked and fermented into wine?
Santos Bonacci makes an interesting point,when he says Jesus (the sun) is crucified four times every year (hence the four accounts of his crucifixion in each of the four gospels)….at the two solstices and two equinoxes…….he explains how one of the accounts of the crucifixion of Jesus is talking about the Autumnal equinox.
In talking about these verses from John 19:29,30.
Next notice Keats says this:-
And there she lullèd me asleep,
And there I dreamed—Ah! woe betide!—
The latest dream I ever dreamt
On the cold hill side.
I saw pale kings and princes too,
Pale warriors, death-pale were they all;
They cried—‘La Belle Dame sans Merci
Hath thee in thrall!’
Spring/summer is the awakening of the earth…when things come (spring) to life.
However autumn/winter is when the earth goes to sleep/and the sun is in its sleep part of the cycle/sine wave…just as we are when it gets dark.(we sleep and dream too!)
And again he talks about pale warriors……and death!
This is the same symbolism contained in the vision of the four horsemen (see previous blog)
Another wee side note……notice Keats has the knight kiss the “belle dame”…how many times?
“And there I shut her wild wild eyes
With kisses four.”
From the four seasons to the four elements…..the four is ubiquitous in myth and scripture…….it is represented by the cross in Christianity.
Again as seen in previous blogs,this same allegory is seen in paintings,such as this one below “Venus and Mars” by Botticelli.
Mars is sleeping…just like the knight in Keats’s poem……And Venus is awake.(it is winter).
A good thing to remember would be that Mars rules Aries (spring equinox)…light/day,which kicks off the six months of light and growth.
And Venus rules Libra….the autumnal equinox….dark/night….Libra kicks off the six months of darkness and death.
Mars and Venus are two opposites…..Mars starts the light part of the cycle off and Venus starts the dark part of the cycle.
The picture above is telling us of the female/dark/night/winter part of the cycle.
This part of the year is talked about in allegory in the bible for instance in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verses 5-8 where the dark maiden says
However there is another secret contained in the scriptures.
Satan/Saturn/Lucifer is both male and female.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!
In one sense it is talking about the sun as it heads down into the wintry part of the cycle….the son/sun of the morning…yes!
The sun is the morning star….the sun is a star that arrives every morning!
However Lucifer is also Venus….the feminine….Sophia…..the light bearer!
Just as the woman bears children,the darkness/Isis gives birth to light.
(Isis is the light bearer,she says the fruit she brings forth (bears) is the sun)
And doesn’t Sofia mean “wisdom”…and isn’t that connected with Eve and “wisdom” from eating the apple….Eve is Lucifer (Lucifer means light-bearer)…..the female.
And that is why Lucifer is female in the film “the ninth gate”
Lucifer falls from heaven….a heavenly fall.
The story of Eve and the fruit is called “the fall of man” where they fall from Eden/paradise/garden/heaven……an earthly fall.
So we have two “falls.”
From that fall Adam and Eve gained wisdom,knowledge of good and bad.
Genesis 3:22 notes, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.”
They became like the gods!
Nighttime is the time to receive wisdom and knowledge,the darkness is that what gives knowledge and wisdom…the occult…the hidden treasures of the bible.
You find hidden gems in the dark soil,and pearls in the deep water, hidden in the oyster shell.Notice the two elements involved,earth and water?……earth and water are the female elements….the dark maiden!
This is why the owl is a symbol of wisdom…..it is connected to night and darkness.
That is why occult literature (including the bible when we look under the surface) gives knowledge and wisdom….notice the owl with books. (Libra/Library/Liberty).
(The candle in the round dish representing sex/wisdom/knowing(when Adam and Eve had sex..the bible says he “knew” his wife) the straight candle is the penis/the round dish the vagina).
Knowing is connected to wisdom and also sex.
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
When talking about Adam and Eve having sex….the bible says this
And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the LORD.
Just another side note,when I was a Jehovah’s Witness,the JW bible (New World Translation) said this at John 17:3.
“This means everlasting life…taking in knowledge of you and of the one you sent forth”
Whereas all other bibles say this:-
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
You may say…what’s the difference?
“Knowing” and “taking in knowledge” are two different things entirely…you might take in knowledge of some film star from books,however you don’t know them like their husband/wife does….the bible is talking about this intimate “knowing” (gnosis).
Looking again to the owl above…isn’t the sign of Libra the start of the autumn/winter cycle/darkness…and isn’t the word “Libra” contained in library…connected to the books that the owl is sitting on.(“wisdom” comes also from books/”sex” on another higher plane)
Doesn’t Isis (Satan/darkness/female/matter) give birth to light?
“The fruit I bring forth is the sun,” she says.
The darkness gives birth to light!
This is why priests wear black robes…feminine attire….representing darkness/Libra/female/wisdom/Saturn…..and the white collar with the head representing the light arising out of the darkness.
The balance of the two forces!
Also judges….and that is why they wear a lambs wool wig representing the light of Aries.
Dagon is a god who is connected to the sea and fish.
If you read my blog on sex and religion…the name “Oannes”/Jonah/john is connected to the yoni.
The yoni is the vagina,the female,and it links to the fish,and the vesica piscis…(bladder of the fish).
Venus is also connected to the sea….just like Dagon!
What Venus and Dagon represent is again the dark half of the year…the feminine…”the beautiful woman without mercy” as Keats calls her.
Also,Satan or Saturn,the ruler of the lower forces and planet earth in that he symbolizes time and restriction/hardship/teaches lessons.
Remember in the tree of life,the male pillar is called “mercy“and the female pillar is called “severity“,she is severe,not merciful,whereas you think it would/should be the other way round.
She is without mercy……”La belle dame sans merci.”
And is it only wordplay that Dagon who represents the darkness is pronounced “day-gone.”
I heard the above Dagon/daygone listening to an interview with an occultist.
The feminine is Satan in disguise.
“You look like an angel/walk like an angel/talk like an angel……but I got WISE (wisdom)…..you’re the devil in disguise…..oh yes you are…the devil in disguise”
That is why there is a “Bearded Venus”…the “Venus Barbata”
This is why Baphomet has both male and female parts.
There is a lot of symbolism going on in the above picture…let’s have a look at some of it
Notice the four elements?
FIRE coming from the head.
AIR represented by the wings.
WATER represented by the fish scales in the half circle round the penis.
EARTH represented by the goats feet.
MALE represented by the penis.
FEMALE represented by the breasts.
The shape the arms are making…giving us the hermetic saying…”As above …so below”
Or as it is said in the bible….Matthew 6:9,10
Notice also the two serpents around the penis of Baphomet above…..does it remind you of anything?
This is Mercury or Hermes……..the hermaphroditic god
And the word “hermaphrodite” consists of Hermes (mercury)….and Aphrodite (venus).
The word “herm” or “herma” is linked with “penis” also.
again the male/female!
And remember Hermes/Mercury is the trickster….as is Satan!
And “the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he (she) didn’t exist”
So we have the symbols of the fish,and the goat in the symbol of Baphomet,and again isn’t the fish and goat the symbol of Capricorn?
Capricorn is connected to the fish and goat….this is the feminine,CARDINAL EARTH sign.
Some satanists have a goatee beard too,because they understand that it represents the winter part of the cycle/and the feminine/sinister,and the darkest part of winter is the winter solstice in Capricorn (midnight of the year),which is ruled by Saturn.
and satanists follow the left hand (female) path.
Walter Raleigh shows us a picture of “the hidden one” in “The history of the world”
See if you can see the old goat hidden in the picture.
The Old goat/Saturn/Satan is the ruler of the world after all!
2nd Corinthians 4:4
“Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.”
Notice in that verse….Satan/Saturn blinds and stops people from seeing the light….again symbolism of winter/darkness.
He is Elus,(the Elus-ive one),Kronos/Chronos/Saturn.
Chronos/Saturn/Santa/Satan/Old (Saint) Nick (Santa comes at the winter solstice (Capricorn) does he not?)…..Satan also brings gifts to those who do good…..remember all Gods/Goddesses/concepts/forces/symbols have a good and bad side.
For example…Venus is the Goddess/concept/force of love/desire…now love is a good thing is it not……however we also get the word “venereal” from Venus…the 7 planets or forces all have a good and bad side…7 virtues and 7 vices.
All symbols are neutral…it is our programs and prejudices and desires/actions that give them charge.
Aleister Crowley has this to say about “symbols” in “The book of Thoth.”…
Santa is Saint Nicholas,Satan is also known as Old Nick is he not?
Just like Isis,Saturn has 1000 names!
Saturn is also the shadow/shade/darkness.
Whereas Jesus is the light of the world,and Satan is the shade/shadow/hidden one.
The Star of David is the 6 pointed star….which has a hexagon in the middle of it (which can also be a 2d representation of a cube)
And the planet Saturn has a hexagon on its north pole also.
Saturn rules the dark part of the days cycle……..from sundown onwards.
And the Jewish people start their day at….sundown/sunset.
And again is it only coincidence that the Jewish new year (Rosh Hashanah) starts just at the autumnal equinox….the sunset of the year?
Rosh Hashanah means head of the year.
The “Jews” are the ones who celebrate the dark part of the cycle,the night/winter part of the cycle,the wisdom part of the cycle…..they are the wise ones.
They are the wise ones/the cunning ones,cunning related to “cunny”,the vagina where we get the word “cunt” from…or “cunnilingus”…again it isn’t bad,it is only a word.
“Honi soit qui mal y pense”……”Evil be to him who evil thinks“
Kundalini contains both kund/cunt (female),and lini/lingam (male)
In other words….the male and the female forces in the human body.
Samuel Pepys wrote in his diary about the time he got caught with his hand up the maids skirt….
“And after supper, to have my head combed by Deb, which occasioned the greatest sorrow to me that ever I knew in this world; for my wife, coming up suddenly, did find me embracing the girl with my hand under her skirts; and indeed, I was with my hand in her cunny.”
(Diary entry “25th October 1668”)
Oops!…..maybe he should have been more “cunning.”
Cunning/wisdom/Sophia/knowing are all to do with the feminine principle….the female/winter/satan/saturn part of the cycle.
I do hope you are starting to see the patterns and connecting things for yourself,because as I keep saying,it is only you that can awaken yourself,anyone else can only be the seed planter,it is your meditation and research that can awaken your higher consciousness.
1st Corinthians 3:5-7
What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, even as the Lord gave opportunity to each one. I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. So then neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but God who causes the growth.
The “God” who makes the seed grow is your higher self….your unfurling rose of higher consciousness from within yourself.
And with that it’s time to end this blog.
Thanks for reading,fellow peoples of the planet!
In one of the previous blogs (sex and religion) I stated that the compass and square (above) on one level….represents sex…..the compass being the male principle…and the square below being the female principle.
The compass (the male) on top of the female (represented by the square) with her legs wide apart.
However symbols have layers upon layers of meanings,so let’s have a look at the symbol to see if there is anything else hidden in plain sight
Let’s focus on the letter “G”…..representing “Generation” or “GAOTU”
Could the seven planets be represented by the letter “G”……yes!
And the clue to revealing it is in a system known to the esoteric schools as Gematria
Particularly “English Gematria” in this case.
And what is Gematria exactly?…….well it is to do with linking each letter to a number.
For instance….A is the first letter of the alphabet…so therefore has a numerical value of…1
Now what number would the letter “G” relate to?
Well the letter “G” relates to the number 7…it is the seventh letter of the English alphabet.
And the number 7 is the number of the classical planets…the seven planets
Below shows someone with the number 7 replacing the letter “G” in the compass and square on his t-shirt.
It can also stand for the number three in Hebrew Gematria…as the letter “Gimel” is the third letter of the Hebrew alphabet …and “Gamma” in the Greek alphabet……symbols can have layer upon layer of meaning.
Why am I telling you this about Gematria?…..because in a later blog we will be looking at the tetragrammaton (YHVH) and its link to the number 26.
Here is a freemason talking about symbols and their layers…..also how symbols link to each other….and if you read carefully…you should find the 26 in there somewhere.
And now to this blog …the number four and the square……
In freemasonry a mason can be called a “square-man”…or are said to be “on the square”
On masonic rings you can see the “square on point.”
Why the square on point?…..well one explanation of the square on point is that it represents the four cardinal points of the zodiac.
What are the four cardinal points of the zodiac?…..well…as I started writing this blog today we are at one of the four “points”…….the summer solstice
The four points are…. the spring equinox(aries),the summer solstice(cancer),the autumnal equinox(libra) and the winter solstice(capricorn)
They represent the four seasons,spring,summer,autumn and winter
Again…..Aries is a fire sign…..A CARDINAL FIRE sign…..it is the gateway to 3 months of spring
Capricorn is the CARDINAL EARTH sign…the gateway to the three months of winter
Libra is the CARDINAL AIR sign…gateway to the three months of autumn
Cancer is the CARDINAL WATER sign….and start of the three months of summer
The number four is throughout the bible
For instance…is it another coincidence that on the FOURTH DAY….God made the luminaries that give us our signs and SEASONS….(again there are four seasons)
14 Then God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years;and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 God made the two great lights, the greater light to govern the day, and the lesser light to govern the night; He made the stars also. 17 God placed them in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. 19 There was evening and there was morning, a fourth day.
Four means foundation…it gives a platform on which things can be built
Can this also be the reason why when students graduate they wear a “mortar board?”
We also saw in an earlier blog that saturn teaches us lessons…saturns colour is black…and could this be why students wear black robes also?
The “square” of the year is the four seasons.
Our year has four seasons…spring,summer,autumn and winter.
The “square” of the day is….morning,afternoon,evening and night.
Also…spring is the morning of the year (dawn to midday)
summer is the afternoon of the year (midday to evening)
these two seasons are the “male” part of the year…the light!
Autumn is the evening of the year (evening to midnight)
Winter is the night of the year (midnight to dawn)
These two seasons are the “female” part of the year…..the darkness!
The four continues in the bible……the river that ran through Eden parted into four rivers
The Pishon,Gihon,Hiddekel and the Euphrates
10 A river watering the garden flowed from Eden; from there it was separated into four headwaters. 11 The name of the first is the Pishon; it winds through the entire land of Havilah, where there is gold. 12 (The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there.) 13 The name of the second river is the Gihon; it winds through the entire land of Cush.14 The name of the third river is the Tigris; it runs along the east side of Ashur. And the fourth river is the Euphrates.
Notice how one thing parts into four?
The year (one) into four seasons
The day (one) into four quarters
The Edenic river (one) into four parts.
The “ONE” God (deity/”day”ity) represented by the four letters…the Tetragrammaton!
Below is a diagram showing what each of the four letters represent.
The new testament (one) has four gospels
Talking about the new testament……….
When Jesus dies his garments were divided into how many parts?
When the soldiers crucified Jesus, they took his clothes, dividing them into four shares, one for each of them, with the undergarment remaining. This garment was seamless, woven in one piece from top to bottom.
Remember Jesus is the sun and the four parts of his “garment” are the four seasons
Why the four?
Lon Milo Duquette says that to understand what “God” is…..”The One”…..is a difficult concept to get your mind around…..looked at as one thing,it is hard to make comparisons or to grasp what the “oneness” or “God” is.
We can divide the one into two to get some idea of what “the one ” is…and that is the polarity…duality.
Male and female
Good and evil
Light and darkness
We grasp that concept well.It helps us compare and contrast things.
“And the LORD God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.”
However when we divide it further into “four-ness” we can start to examine things and compare and contrast what the “oneness” is,in even more depth.
That is why God’s name is divided into four letters….the Tetragrammaton.
It is to help us in our understanding of what is going on!
Again that is why there are four gospel accounts of Jesus’ life and ministry….
Each of them emphasizes a unique aspect of his sacrifice and ministry. Matthew’s focus is on Christ being the son of David and a King. Mark highlights the suffering servant aspect of his ministry. John proclaims Jesus is the One and Only begotten Son of God. And Luke showcases him as the Perfect Man.
Again Lon Milo Duquette tells us that the Hebrew kabbalah divides the human soul into four parts that reflect…on a microcosmic level…universal levels of consciousness and being that correspond to the four letters of the Tetragrammaton…Yod,He,Vav,He
The four suits of the tarot represent the same thing
Wands,swords,Cups and Disks
Also matter (one) splits into the four elements of the ancients…fire,water,air and earth.
The four parts of the soul and their correspondences are:-
Chiah…the life force…the highest part of the human soul,which corresponds to the Yod of the tetragrammaton,the element of Fire,the suit of Wands in the tarot,and the level of Atziluth in the tree of life.
Neshamah….the second highest part of the human soul,which corresponds to the first Heh of the tetragrammaton,the element of Water,the suit of Cups in the tarot,and the level of Briah in the kabbalistic tree of life.
Ruach…the next level,corresponds with Vav in the tetragrammaton,the element of Air in the four elements,the suit of Swords in the tarot,and the level of Yetzirah in the kabbalistic tree of life.
Nefesh….is the lowest part of the soul,the animal part of the soul and it corresponds with the final Heh in the tetragrammaton,the element of Earth in the four elements,the Disks,Coins or Pentacles in the tarot,any of those three can be used to represent the same suit…and also the level of Assiah in the kabbalistic tree of life.
Again as with all other religious or spiritual ideas and concepts,they are represented by all cultures with different symbols and ideas,although representing the same idea,it is the spectrum…they are saying the same thing from a differing perspective.
An example…..if a bus crashed…….two people at opposite sides of the road would describe the same scene differently from differing viewpoints…even though describing the same thing
One may say the advertising board on the bus was a cereal advert…and the person on the opposite side of the road would say it was an advert for coffee…when both can be correct…although differing.
Everyone sees the same thing through their own lens…and this applies to cultures and these esoteric concepts.
This is why the Jewish people represent the “fourness” as the four letters…. tetragrammaton
Ezekiel saw the four as a chariot (merkabah) with the four living creatures….man,bull,lion and eagle
The Greeks had the “Animoi”…….Boreas,Zephyrus,Notos,Eurus
Kabbalah has…….the four worlds!
In Norse mythology….the four stags of the yggdrasil tree
Dáinn, Dvalinn, Duneyrr and Duraþrór
Also in Norse mythology the four dwarves
Norðri, Suðri, Austri and Vestri
Or the Four Heavenly Kings of Buddhism and the East
And elsewhere in the world….the Mayans had the four brothers…or the Bacab
In Rome we have the Quadriga…the Chariot of the Gods
In Egypt…the Four Sons of Horus
The Lamassu of the Assyrians which you will have seen in the earlier blogs
This is why we have the four corners of the world
And this is also why the fourth album from the amazing led zeppelin was called four symbols
If you think I’m stretching it…..Jimmy Page (guitarist supreme) understands this knowledge very well I would assume.
He used to own an occult bookstore called “equinox”
And Jimmy Page once owned Boleskine house…former home of Aleister Crowley.
Could this understanding of the “fourness” be why the Qur’an allows a man (the fifth element/spirit) to have four wives….the four elements?
the four elements represent matter as stated before………..matter is where the word mother/mater/ma/matrix/meat comes from.
also the Egyptian Goddess Ma’at
notice she is concerned with justice and weighing on the scales?…..this corresponds to the sign of libra……the start of the autumn/winter part of the zodiacal cycle…the female half of the year…..the dark part of the year….the dying part of the year……all growth stops at this part of the cycle
Do you remember in a previous blog I said that spring and summer were allegorically the sun orgasming his rays/sperm/life activating forces over the earth
Well at this part of the year the orgasming sun rays are stopping….this is why an orgasm is called in French “la petite mort”…”the little death”
The good times are at an end!…your five seconds of summer are over!
The scorpion of scorpio just backstabbed you…and is it a coincidence that scorpio is linked to the genitals in the zodiac of the body?
Just as the tide comes in and moves out…….everything has this tidal movement
From blinking…we move from dark to light and back again.
We sleep and awaken.
we rise vertically during the day (male principle) and rest horizontally at night (female principle)
summer to winter……light to dark
good times,bad times…isn’t that another led zeppelin song?….he he
all nature has this constant movement and rhythm
In the book of Daniel chapter 7 can you remember how many beasts he saw in vision?
Yet again it is the four
In effect then……all religions are arguing and fighting over nothing,each religion sees the same thing from different angles and expresses it in their own cultural way!
No religion is the right religion…….they all have a little piece of the same thing.
“A little piece of blue sky”
It is when you bring the wholeness into oneself….then you awaken…and the knowledge will bubble up inside your own self like a never ending fountain as you see everything connecting…….everywhere…when you start to see the patterns and gain more understanding.
You will never need to go anywhere outside yourself to get water or refreshment…no religion or person outside yourself can give this knowing..it will come from inside you!
When the pupil is ready….the teacher will appear!
However it takes real effort,struggle and sacrifice to attain it
“Keep on struggling to enter through the narrow door, because I tell you that many people will try to enter, but won’t be able to do so.”
It is a paradigm shift…..a change of consciousness…an awakening…….a renaissance…..a new birth.
9 The Samaritan woman said to him, “You are a Jew and I am a Samaritan woman. How can you ask me for a drink?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.[a])
10 Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water.”
11 “Sir,” the woman said, “you have nothing to draw with and the well is deep. Where can you get this living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the well and drank from it himself, as did also his sons and his livestock?”
13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
This inherent understanding of the “fourness” is why we also have
four horsemen of the apocalypse
Also in revelation…Jesus represents the light part of the zodiac….the lamb who is worthy to open the scrolls…. The lamb = Aries (cardinal fire) ….or the lion of the tribe of Judah….Leo… (Leo is fixed fire)…two zodiacal fire signs…connected with the sun and light.
Revelation 5:5 and 6
Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.”
Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing at the center of the throne, encircled by the four living creatures and the elders. The Lamb had seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.
What do “cardinal fire”…”fixed fire”….”mutable fire” mean?
Lon Milo Duquette explained it one time and used the element of fire to illustrate.
He said a cardinal fire sign is the sign that bursts out suddenly and says….”Hi I’m Fire” like a jack in the box…and punches you on the nose while introducing itself……think of a match igniting and all it’s energy
He then says that fixed fire is the fire that is fully established…..or as Mr Duquette explains….if you looked at a picture of fire in an encyclopedia…..it would have a picture of the fixed fire there…the match fully lit….or a “roaring” fire.
Then he says the mutable sign is the fire dying…or as lon milo says….”yeah…I’m fire…but I’m flexible….whatever…(shrugs)”….or like the match about to extinguish
These are what the cardinal,fixed and mutable signs mean.
Now hopefully you will be seeing the patterns and the zodiac….once hidden right in front of your eyes coming to light as you grasp these patterns within yourself
Back to the “fourness” again.
The four horses of apollo
Four Cardinal Directions
The Cross in all its forms with its four parts
And the corner stone…a corner is the angle where two sides meet….see compass and square above…see also two equinoxes,dark and light meet…..it brings wholeness,equilibrium…hence the equinoxes…and isn’t one of the equinoxes in libra?
Isn’t the word libra hidden in equilibrium?
Also “equilibrium” means “when two forces meet and are balanced”
And it just so happens that the symbol for libra is the balances…the scales
Astrology is the key to everything that is going on in nature,and it is the key to understanding religion.
However it is hidden just under the surface to most folks,and they will never see it.
If I could offer any advice at all to anyone…..it would be learn the 12 signs of the zodiac and where they are in relation to the yearly cycle…and learn the seven planets and in which zodiacal house they rule….and slowly like a jigsaw puzzle…you will start to see the picture emerge.
Usually when you start a jigsaw…first you find the four corners…then the edges…then it starts to take shape!
When I was a Jehovah’s witness,I used to laugh at the ancients thinking that a turtle held up the world….well the last laugh is on me….not knowing that the ancients were symbolizing the “fourness” in nature ….and the ever changing world which moves very slowly…and also the stability and foundation of the earth.
four turtles or/and an elephants holding up the world=4 cardinal points,four elements
As said in one of the first blogs….The four states of matter
four fundamental forces of physics
strong nuclear force=fire
weak nuclear force=air
(these are the two masculine principles of the four elements)
symbolized by the upright triangle
water and earth are the two female principles symbolized by the downward facing triangles
Four main blood groups
A, B, AB and O
Four nucleotides in DNA
Aren’t the four nucleotides the building blocks of life…the platform?
Also the four beats in music
Aren’t the four beats the platform (mortar board) in which to build your song structure?
In chemistry…the four building blocks of our body are CHON
Remember there is also a fifth element…ether……the fifth element is the activator
It is the quintessence…again quint meaning five….and the essence
There are five platonic solids that correspond to the five elements
Four decks of cards…..etc etc
In the world of numbers we have the four also….add,subtract,multiply,divide
So when ezekiel and john described the four living creatures…they were telling us about this ancient hidden knowledge.
It was a knowledge or a knowing of the forces of nature put into poetry,allegory,myth and scripture to be hidden to the profane or those with no interest……and yet be there for those who want to seek and find it.
Well that’s this blog done……please share if you can.
Thanks for reading!
